Response from a competitive cyclists to a teammate when asked how he got his son into cycling:
I can't tell you how happy I have been with the program. Anthony started riding with Frazier back in December. The change in his cycling has been incredible to watch. Fall of last year Anthony was scared to death to sit on a wheel even at 12mph. Now 6 months later he sits comfortably in a paceline at 22mph and tucked in on descents at 35mph without thinking twice. All aspect of his cycling have dramatically improved, strength, endurance, speed, bike handling and what to do or not to do during pack riding. Yes, he has a lot to learn but considering he's 9 years old it's amazing.
Every time I ride with the Frazier kids I am speechless at what these kids are doing and capable of given the proper instruction and an enjoyable environment to do it in. The coaches are knowledgeable and great interacting and motivating the kids. Ralph Frazier does an excellent job setting the tone during practice. He's friendly and has fun with the kids but also expects a lot from them. There is no question who is in charge. When it comes to practice it doesn't matter how good you are or think you are there is a job to do and you do it regardless of your age. A 9 year old is expected to do the same things a 14 year old is asked to do. It may not be as fast or as pretty but give it 100% effort regardless.
The kids in his program are great as well. From the first day Anthony started practice he was welcomed into the team. Kids of all ages interact with each other. You would think that the older kids would distance themselves from the little ones but it doesn't happen. Before and after practice and races the 9 & 10 year olds are talking and hanging out with the 16 & 17 year olds. It truly is a team environment.
If your son is interested in cycling whether it be competitive or simply to enjoy a lifelong healthy activity I can't think of a better program to guide him.
I truly feel lucky to have found the Frazier program. We as cyclists are fortunate to have such a top notch program in our area to help grow the sport.
