The AK-47 of Cycling Coaching
Let’s Talk Cycling
Hey, I’m Nikolai
I used to race for the Soviet national team and won a UCI Junior World Championship in a team time trial. That was in 1984 when everyone rode steel bikes with downtube shifters and toe clips. No deep rim carbon wheels. Imagine that.
Back then, they made me eat cement to ride my bike faster. It worked so I make everyone I coach these days eat cement too because I know it works.
So what I'm trying to say is this. I'm an unusual cycling coach with an unusual, old-school, time-tested training methodology. I invite you to read a more detailed page about me and then subscribe to my mailing list where I talk about training and racing.
Or you can skip the reading and subscribe to the list because that's how you roll.
Listen to my Interview on ABC Radio
I’ve been invited to ABC Radio’s Conversations with Richard Fidler show. We talked about what it was like to live and race in the Soviet Union.
The interview gave me an idea to write a memoir. I’ve approached RIDE Cycling Review magazine with the idea and have been writing a memoir series for more than two years now.
