"It's in no small part to you and Wenzel that I had my best year ever on the bike in general and racing in particular:
STP: 208 miles at 19.7 MPH. That's pretty fast for me.
A Short Track win! Never in a million years did I ever expect to win a race.
Short Track Masters BAR: 16th/148.
Age-graded Masters BAR 50-54: 22nd/160 with 492 pts.
Lewis and Clark Ultra 12 hr TT: 169.7 miles with over 10k climbing all with a bad rear wheel.
Lots more too.
Can't wait to see what 2017 brings!" ~ Matt M.

"I was an untrained 63yo guy who wanted to ride the LOTOJA race (Logan UT to Jackson WY 206 mile). I started training with Andrew in early June. I had some hiccups in the training due to bike fit and a shoulder injury but Andrew adapted my program and still had me prepared for my event. The group of guys I ride with, all LOTOJA veterans, thought I was over training. However after a SUCCESSFUL finish Saturday, the most seasoned rider in our group proclaimed that my coach did me right. I agree. Andrew was very responsive and I feel that we had a personal relationship and he understood my goals and limitations. I'm glad I decided to choose Wenzel Coaching. Thanks for the journey!
