COACHING

You can now train with one of the best ultra-cyclists in the World, Marko Baloh as your personal cycling coach.

I coach newcomers to the sport as well as experienced riders who want to try something new in training or tackle ultra-cycling for the first time. Most of my coaching is done through e-mail, Skype or FaceTime and telephone, so I am available for everyone no matter from which part of the World you are. 

As you know my field of expertise is ultra-cycling, everything from brevets and PBP (Paris-Brest-Paris, I’ve done it twice), the 12h and 24h races, ultra races all around the World, to the toughest of them all - the Race across America, which I’ve done seven times, the only RAAM victory coming in a 2-person division in 2008 with my friend Tomaz Percic. 

Bellow are the basic packages that I offer, but if you have your own ideas about it, send me an e-mail and I am sure we can work something out for you. Contact me at e-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Usually we agree for a year long coaching (12 months). Although there is a monthly fee, not all months of coaching are equal. The monthly fee represents an amortized value. During the course of the year we will have busier times and quieter times.

Payment is due the first of the month, via bank transfer or via PayPal.
