Kurt has competed in endurance sports for nearly 2 decades, starting as a cyclist and nordic skier, he found multisport in the late 90's, and has raced as a triathlete and duathlete since then. Kurt races a "split" season. In the summer he competes in triathlons around the country. Then come winter, Kurt is a top masters skier for the Alpina/Madshus nordic race team.
After receiving his degree in Kinesiology, Kurt moved to the "mecca" that is Boulder, Colorado to try his hand as an elite cyclist. He was lucky to be able to train with some of the best endurance athletes and coaches in the world! To this day, he uses these principles to guide his athletes. He also started helping some local cyclists design training plans based on solid periodization and specific goals. This is when the coaching bug bit!
