Over the years I’ve earned a fair amount of respect due to my longevity as a professional athlete in a pretty unforgiving sport. As a pro cyclist, I’ve won or placed in road and track events in various countries for 20 years. I have 13 pro wins, 11 grand tours and 8 classics to my credit. Even after suffering a bad knee injury in a crash during the Tour de France in 2014, I didn’t let it keep me down for long.
For over 20 years I have defined winning for myself with road and track cycling events around the world. Now, I want to help determined riders like you develop the attitude and technique you need to realize your own vision for winning. By joining the Coach Hendy team, you will achieve your personal best through my customized coaching programs. I promise to push you to your threshold and past it, again and again, until you’re ready to tackle the next level.
I’ve ridden for Health Net, T-Mobile, Team Columbia, Sky Procycling, Lotto Belisol and UnitedHealthcare teams. Teammates I’ve raced with most often are Andre Greipel, Marcel Sieberg and Adam Hansen.
