Watch Coach Kurt talk about why he thinks NICA is so special and read his interview below.
What inspired you to become a NICA coach?
My love of cycling and my desire to spend time with my son.
What is your most memorable NICA experience?
So many memories of students successes – pushing through their fear, anxiety and physical limitations to complete something that they never thought possible. When my son crossed the finish line in Warsaw in 2021 with excruciating back pain – he fought through and endured the pain to finish strong. I was so proud of his effort.
What happened on your first mountain bike ride?
At the time, I had a Trek 26” wheel mountain bike. It was pretty slow and grueling.
What is your favorite game or activity to lead at practice?
Foot Down – far and away! The students always want to play to see who is the best.
What is the most used item in your coach pack?
Cones – I use them for skill sessions, but they also work great for games- i.e. Foot Down. A close second is stack of cardboard boxes – for Cardboard Slide.
What is your favorite trail
The students love Castlewood State Park with it’s fast and flowing, challenging trails.
What is one thing that you wish you knew when you started coaching?
I did not expect that the students and their families would create such family of support and encouragement. Of all the student groups that I have lead/coached, this group of students and families have had the biggest impact on me and my life.
