Hello everyone, I wanted to introduce myself to the huge ThumperTalk.com rider community! I have been a human performance coach for 29 years and have ridden motocross since 1978. Over the last 15 years, I have had the pleasure of working with some of the motorcycle industries greatest riders (Ryan Dungey, Jeremy Martin, Adam Cianciarulo, Jordan Bailey, Charlie Mullins, Brock Tickle, Kyle Chisholm, Ashley Fiolek); however, with the demands of a growing family I have resigned from working with professional riders due to the extensive travel schedule.
Over the years, I have enjoyed working with riders as young as 4 all the way up to 81; beginner to pro, motocross, supercross, off road, road racing. What I have discovered over these years, is that the frustrations with nutrition, hydration, sprint speed, endurance, flexibility, dealing with injuries, how to handle heat and humidity and how to handle the mental aspects associated with performance run across all ages and ability levels.
Here at ThumperTalk.com, I will be moderating your questions, comments, frustrations or concerns associated with nutrition and fitness relevant to any form or riding. Within my Coach Robb blog, I will be posting a series of articles and videos outlining the true anatomy of speed. When an excellent riding coach (like Gary Semics) makes a suggestion about how to rider more effectively, I want to make sure that you have the proper strength, flexibility and endurance to implement Gary's techniques correctly and for as long as you are riding or racing.
If there is a particular area that you are struggling with: cramping, dehydration, late race fatigue, inability to sprint, handling race day pressure, etc., please feel free to post here on ThumperTalk.com so that I can ensure that my blog posts are helping you improve your riding fitness.
I want to thank Bryan and everyone at ThumperTalk.com for this opportunity.
Yours in sport and health,
