I am very proud of the staff we have assembled at Tailwind Endurance.  A mix of riders and triathletes with a breadth of expertise and experience.   I am thrilled that we are able to learn from each other and have grown to communicate about the athletes that attend our classes.  This communication has helped athletes find success in their schedule no matter what day they ride.
