“During the time I’ve had Kori’s coaching support, I know I’ve grown tremendously as a cyclist and a person. She is the ultimate mentor and the Wenzel team is better because she is a part of it. Kori knew how to communicate with me in a way where I felt understood, and she pushed my training limits to ensure that my strengths were found or developed. There aren’t enough ways to express the respect I have for her and the gratitude I have for the work she gave over the time we’ve spent together.”

"I have just started to work with Kori and I am already noticing big improvements in my cycling. She has been nothing but supportive and has called me every week to see how things are going. Her coaching and the training plan has given me the structure I was looking for and a renewed motivation for my sport. I can't wait to start the racing season!" ~ Jessica Kaplan
"I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say how pleased I have been working with Kori. I came to her over-trained, frustrated and full of self doubt. In the short time I have been working with her she has taught me so much and brought my confidence back. We have been having an awful winter here in Massachusetts and she has helped to adapt my plan to accommodate so much indoor riding. Unfortunately I have been sick, but she is quick to make changes to my training plan. She listens to my feedback and is always very encouraging. I am looking forward to working with her as we approach the start of the race season." ~ K. Beard
"Kori recognized my fear of staying at the front and really worked with me on this at Tour of America's Dairyland. I had two serious crashes prior to that year and would sometimes time-trial a race at the rear of the pack and do other energy-wasting things. She made specific race goals for me to help me realize I could feel more confident riding at the front of a race. At the Foothill College Circuit Race, there was some shuffling in the pack and her voice rang in my head and I moved to the front. We were climbing the short but steep hill when I realized no one was passing me. I took the opportunity to break away and held the pack off for another 3-4 laps and had my first big win. I realized, looking back, that the power I held during the race was similar to what she had had me do during my workouts. It was not some miracle that I won but the result of steady training to develop fitness and confidence in my racing." ~ Anne F.
