Todd started racing BMX in North Carolina at age 11 and quickly established himself as a fast rider, winning many regional and national events across the US. He followed his passion for BMX racing to California and Hawaii where eventually took up the sport of Formula Car racing, winning many races and a championship. After moving back to North Carolina, Todd returned to bike racing, most recently winning the 2010/2011 North Carolina Cyclocross Masters series. He is also a former NC Cyclocross State Champion and places consistently in the top 5 in the Southern Classic XC MTB Series, Cat 1.
Todd lives in Cary, North Carolina with his wife Dorothy, an accomplished ultra runner, and their three cats. They enjoy hiking and biking in the mountains and going to the beach when the surf is up.
"Todd has been an incredible coach. All business, but knows the importance of keeping everything fun. His thorough focus and positive attitude, helped me not only get a road upgrade (as planned) this year, but made for many great individual results and memories. Looking forward to cyclocross and to next year!" ~T.Hancock
"Todd has far exceeded my expectations in providing very high quality MTB skills training for both my son - a beginner mountain biker - and myself - an intermediate level mountain biker. Todd's many years of racing experience, along with his outstanding ability to communicate in terms appropriate for any given rider's level, make him a true standout. I highly recommend Todd to anyone interested in becoming a better & faster cyclist." ~ Keith Q
"Before I started my program with Wenzel Coaching, I was a somewhat competitive Cat 3 racer. I was looking to improve, so I looked into some coaching options and found Wenzel. I met with one of their local coaches named Todd Hunter to talk about training. Off the bat he inspired with the confidence that I could start winning races and eventually reach a Cat 2 and then a Cat 1 level if I stuck to my training plan. So we decided to give it a shot and thanks to my program and the awesome one-on-one help with my workouts and skills from Todd, what was once a goal became reality. I am now consistently taking podium spots at Cat 2 races and have even won a couple. The guys I race with and my friends have noticed my rapid improvement and commented on my performance multiple times. I have no doubt that next season I will be racing at a Cat 1 level and maybe even going to Nationals! Todd has kept me motivated and continuously setting higher goals for myself throughout the time I have been working with him. He has, and continues to be an awesome coach and has more than earned his promotion to Associate Coach!" ~Hayden M
