    Jeremy Russell is a passionate advocate for his client athletes. His enthusiasm for training and racing is contagious and will motivate you to work hard to achieve your goals. Jeremy’s background in racing road, cyclocross, mountain bike and track gives him a good understanding of the amount of work, training, and special skills and tactics required for success — and with a masters degree in teaching, he’s able to convey the guidance you’ll need in a digestible way.

    Jeremy’s clients have benefited from his working knowledge of building season-long fitness and event peaks. He will help you determine the abilities you’ll need to develop and then focus workouts as needed to strengthen slow twitch endurance muscles for long efforts and fast twitch muscle for sprints and high-intensity, punchy races. As a former teacher, he understands that individuals learn differently, and that advice and directions need to be tailored to each client. Having worked his way to Cat 1 or Cat 2 in most of his events, he will share with you the tangible life experience that he’s gained along the way.

    Jeremy enjoys guiding ongoing training as well as teaching skills. He is comfortable teaching everything from bike handling and pack dynamics on the road to picking lines in a mountain bike or cyclocross race. If you want to be a faster, better bike racer, Jeremy can help you.

    Jeremy really does know what it takes to succeed at the highest levels of cycling. His racing experience and success include numerous top-10 finishes and championships in 1/2/Pro field in events primarily around the Pacific Northwest but also in the West and in New England. In road racing he is familiar with Western regional stage races such as the Chico Stage Race, Tour of Walla Walla, Capital Stage Race, and Baker City Cycling Classic. His cyclocross experience includes local series championships, national C2 top 20s, and competing at Nationals. On the mountain bike and gravel scene he has won and competition on some of the longest events on the calendar and to boot, he has earned the Best All-round Racer award for the Oregon Bicycle Racing Association (OBRA) 4 times.

    Jeremy is eager to share the benefit of his experience. He lives in Portland with his wife and two children, and if he isn’t riding and racing he’s bound to be cheering on those that are.
