  • One of your's on the big box last weekend. Garrison Minter takes first place in Chainbusters ,Cat 2, 14-19, 3 hour.....International Horse Park, Conyers GA. His lap times would have given him a podium in every category except Cat 1 40-49. Fast and strong on your training program. Thanks!

  • Hey Drew, Great effort today. Looks pretty solid although it felt more up and down during the TT. Lot of stress today at work but it did not seem to have much of an effect. I believe that is a record 20 min TT. Thanks for getting us there. This is a really big milestone for me/us, over 350W for 20 minutes, that's just crazy good. Let me tell you how I really feel. So very excited. This made my day, week, month, year. I can do better!

  • Big thanks to Drew Edsall who was my coach for the past year and got me ready for the Leadville Trail 100. I was ready, I was strong, and I hit my goal. It wasn't easy, but it was worth it.

  • Training with Drew has been the best thing for my racing career. He has pushed me to limits that I didn't know that I could achieve

  • The whole reason I bought this mountain bike training plan was to be competitive in the Tennessee XC State Championship. I had never even raced a Cat 1 race before starting the training program. This past weekend I became the Cat 1 15-29 State Champion.

  • Training with Drew has been the single most beneficial thing for my race career.  I could not have progressed as fast without Drew's expert advice & coaching.

  • With the help of Drew Edsall I have met my goals and finished second overall in the Elite Florida State Championship Series in 2014 and then switched gears in 2015 to endurance racing and won the elite overall title in the Chainbuster Southeastern Endurance Cup 6 hour race Series. There are numerous coaches out there. The reason I chose Drew is because of his organization, engaging/challenging training plans, and most importantly to me, his racing knowledge and expertise.

  • Hi Drew, Just wanted to thank you for your training guide for Peter and I, we were very happy with our results this season (I got 3rd overall and Peter got 5th overall for the Florida State Championship Series) and felt the difference your training plan made in our riding.
