"A coach can help me with a solid plan to achieve my goals. For me it's important to interact with my coach because I think it's very important that I know why I'm doing some training and what the underlying physiology is. In addition, I'm happy to have a coach who also listens to his athletes (especially in less good periods). I have confidence in Alan's approach and the way he uses science in cycling. Because of our experience as athletes and knowledge about training programs I foresee a great cooperation with pleasure as the base for success."
