Rex is the newest member of the PCC coaching team. As soon as he started racing on the velodrome, Rex quickly rose through the elite ranks as a track sprinter. Achieving a podium at the Elite National Championships after just a year and a half of training. Although he is relatively new to track cycling he has been around racing of different sorts for many years.
Growing up he learned about the sport of cycling through his father, a talented triathlete and cyclist in his own right. Learning about training and race strategies from a young age.
Rex recently retired from road racing motorcycles after many successful seasons to race his bicycle on the track full time. After taking to the velodrome, he started to learn about all aspects of sprinting. He quickly absorbed the tactics and training needed to race at an elite level. He is always pursuing the next possible way of going faster, be it training, new riding styles or tactics, and passes this information on to his athletes.
His passion for the sport led him to work with the San Diego Velodrome to revive track sprinting in the area, starting classes and advocating for more sprints to be included in the regular track programs.
A USAC certified coach, Rex constantly tries to find new ways of going to the next level. From learning to work and fabricate with carbon fiber, to designing and building his own custom cycling shoes, you will find it hard to see something on his bike that he hasn’t worked on to be better. Rex takes this mindset to each of the athletes he coaches. Working to find every way to maximize their potential.
Rex brings a unique perspective to cycling and coaching. He is determined to make sure his athletes get the best possible advice, while also listening to what his riders have to say and to point them in the correct direction to achieve their goals.
