Think you can go quicker? Maybe. I didn't think I could go this fast in the 1st place. - Ben Vella
We focused on building bike strength, which was identified as an important area to develop. After just 1 month, I smashed my PB in Busselton with a 4h45'!! I was able to ride hard and still felt fresh to do a great run off the bike - Alexis Girin
The main characteristics to look out for in a good coach are, clear and precise communication, high technical abilities and having the right levels of experience to go with it. I look forward to continuing with Shem as he has helped improve my performance and abilities immensely - Paul McCalman
My coach and I had first a thorough discussion on my life style. Each aspect was taken into account and based on those inputs he prepared a training schedule that perfectly fit my needs. With Shem I picked a winning lottery ticket - Roberto Carfagno
This is why my recent success means so much to me; I managed to win the mental fight and crossed the finish line, knowing that I gave all I had on that day! -Thomas
