High Level Coaching Experience

I've been working as a coach or assistant coach with several professional athletes from different sports. Several youth athletes I coached made it to the ITU World Cup circuit.

I dedicated more than 10 years of my life to race XTERRA as a professional triathlete. As a child I grew up doing motocross and a mix of more traditional sports. Before becoming an XTERRA Pro I spent some years doing ITU and long distance triathlon. My coaching philosophy is a reflection of all the experiences I gathered over all those years of doing many sports, meeting many extraordinary people, asking a million of questions and a never ending desire to study and learn. At the moment I'm coaching my own youth project in Sardinia and I'm coaching age group and elite athletes in following sports: XTERRA, triathlon, mtb XC, cyclocross, running, trail running and motocross. I'm fluent in english, dutch, italian and french.
