Bart’s career as a professional cyclist gave him up-close insight into the world of elite cycling science. He was coached by leading exercise physiologists with cutting-edge training and testing techniques. Because of that influence, the transition from professional athlete to high-level coach was a natural one for Bart, and he began helping other athletes achieve their goals by creating dynamic and effective training programs based on the most current science available.
In 1994, Bart coached two masters athletes to four medals in the Pan American Games in Cuba, and he knew he had found his calling. Since then, Bart has coached hundreds of athletes, from juniors and newbie adults, to Olympians. Applying current technology in all he does, Bart also provides state-of-the-art bicycle fitting using the RETUL system, and also fits Cyclesoles.
