Anthony has years of experience in cross-country skiing and road cycling both as a coach and a competitor. He believes that effective training should be fun, addictive, and accessible to cyclists of all levels and loves that PowerWatts allows the complete novice to train alongside the elite. Don’t hesitate to force Anthony to make use of his MSc in Biomechanics by asking about the rationale behind the training methods used at PowerWatts… or what grip wax to put on your skis… or where the best mountain biking is in the area.

I am an avid cyclist and downhill skier. I started riding at PowerWatts 6 years ago and have been coaching for two years. Most years I put on 4,000-5,000 kms on a bike, most of which is on a mountain bike. I share what I have learned with the morning crew of riders. I’m also the guy who maintains the bikes so they shift nicely and the tires have air. You might see me at Lake Louise during the ski season where I am part of the ski patrol team.

This was accomplished by implementing training techniques and methods to improve their cycling experience, with fun and a balanced lifestyle.
