Behind THE Barriers TV Presents: Cross Talk with Coach Al Donahue
Al Donahue is one of the country’s leading cyclocross experts, but you may not have ever heard of him. Al works closely with a number of talented cycling professionals, from the already-established to the up-and-coming. At the top of his list is 2012 US National Champion Jeremy Powers, who Donahue works closely with to help hone his form and help him to become one of America’s most successful cyclocross riders. On the other end of the spectrum, Donahue is a founding member of the JAM Fund, which helps to turn young, motivated riders into professionals. Donahue helped guide Jeremy Durrin to the Optum Pro Cycling p/b Kelly Benefit Strategies last season, and already this season, turned Stephen Hyde into a UCI race winner. BTB TV sits down this week with Al Donahue, Cycle-Smart coach and all-around cyclocross expert.
