I worked with Lionel for two great years. He always put my objectives first and listened to me and what feedback I was giving. The communication always was great and he understood what I need to preform in races. Lionel tailored the program to the specific races I wanted to perform well in.
But what I most liked about the time working with Lionel was the friendship I got out of it. He’s still a good friend and we talk both about cycling and life. Unfortunately I changed teams and the new team wanted me to work with a coach from the team, if not for that I would have stayed with Lionel and would probably still be working with him.
