Steve’s been racing bikes for over 25 years and coaching all ages for the last 10 years. While serving in the Coast Guard, he raced his first race in Alaska and that was it! He was hooked on racing bikes. Over the next many years, he made it to the elite Cat. 1 ranks and qualified for the Olympic Trials in the years 2000 and 2004. Steve then became a full-time athlete and Team Captain for the U.S Armed Forces Team, which gave him the opportunity to race all over the world.
In 2012, after being asked to coach the kids of his friends, he started a junior cycling team, The Interactive Metronome Development Team. It quickly became the most dominating team in the state and southeast, and won multiple national and state championship titles. Steve now works coaching all levels of athletes in cycling and multisport. He is a leader in building Top Step Development to get kids off their screens and onto bikes.

He gives personal time to his clients, organizing team rides, clinics, etc. He really pays attention to my individual schedule and my goals, taking into account personal / career life demands.

“They say that the difference between winning a bike race and finishing 20th is only 10%. Well, in one year, Steve has helped me improve my personal best by 25 watts, that’s 10%, at 52 years of age! Over the years, I have trained other ways; there is certainly a difference at Top Step. Improve strength, power, endurance and speed with measurable statistics.“
