“The first step—perhaps the most enormous step—is to find what you are genuinely interested in.


If you are genuinely interested, you will discover endless opportunities for improvement. But if you are disinterested, even obvious improvements will feel like a chore.


And, if you can maintain your genuine interest and curiosity as the years accumulate, you will become hard to compete with because you will have skill to go with your passion. If you’re interested, you’re dangerous.”



I think this might be the official week of transition from Road to CX season, with MTB basically wrapping up as well with Chequamegon 40 this weekend.

On the  Norcal MTB volunteer front, I helped our awesome team captain get over 20 signups to the mtb club on Wednesday( over half girls, YES!) and spent a bunch of the weekend on admin stuff that’s super boring. I also got my own ducks in a row keeping my NICA coaching license up to date and watched Noah Hayes kick off his first racing season as a UCI pro at Go Cross C1 and C2 in Roanoke ,VA on GCN.

Bike Fitting

I have been working hard on continuing education  for the new pressure mapping system and getting some bugs out of the system this weekend. I’m pleased that things seem to be sorted now thanks to Totally Computer in San Rafael and I look forward to helping people find that PERFECT saddle position!


Be well,

Coach Johnny
