Our Elite Coaches


Kate Cross

Kate discovered her passion for endurance cycling after a long history of competitive running, including competing as a D1 collegiate heptathlete. She moved to Colorado from New York City for the skiing but stayed for the mountain biking and trail running. After falling in love with mountain biking, she quickly dove head first into mountain bike and gravel racing and is now competing in some of the most competitive off-road races in the United States as a 2024 Life Time Grand Prix athlete.

Working full time and training full time, Kate understands the challenges of work-life-training balance and enjoys coaching athletes to meet their goals in an achievable, healthy manner. With a career in data and finance, she naturally loves nerding out on training data but sees the immeasurable value of less quantitative training metrics. Kate finds joy in mentoring athletes new to bike racing and believes everybody has an opportunity to grow as a well-rounded person and athlete through the training process. As a Boulder resident, she loves building adventurous routes through the endless gravel mountain roads in the greater Boulder area.

As a process-oriented athlete and coach, Kate believes focusing on process goals is key to achieving the results you’re striving for. The other keys to success on the bike? Stay curious and keep having fun.

Cat Bradley


My running journey began as an 800-meter runner at UC-Santa Barbara, where I quickly realized that my spirit was not on the track, but in the mountains. Craving a little adventure and needing to do some self-exploration, I thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail with very little experience. In fact, the warmest article of clothing I packed was my cotton track-suit coupled with a poncho, and I had no idea sleeping pads even existed. However difficult it was, my love for the trails was ignited and has guided my choices since.

My performance at the Bear 100 in 2015 (23:02, 7th fastest time in history) triggered a competitive side in a sport I had previously approached fairly casually. In 2016, I upped my volume from twenty miles per week resulting in a season of podiums and a few wins.

In November of 2016, I won Rio Del Lago 100, coming in under the previous 11-year-old course record. After a hard winter of training and dark mornings balanced with a full-time job as a kindergarten teacher, I was rewarded with a successful 2017 season including a win at the Western States 100.

  • The 2017 Western States 100 Win- toughest conditions the race has ever seen. 13th overall
  • Ultra Trail Mont Du Blanc 6th place women, 1st American women, 3rd American over-all, Fastest top ten women in race history
  • Current Rim-to-rim-to-rim Fastest Known Time Holder in 7:52. Broke a 10 year old Record. First woman to break 8 hours
  • Canyons Endurance Run 100k Win minutes of the course record (Course record held by three-time Olympian and Western States 100 champ Magdalena Boulet). 5th overall
  • Rio Del Lago 100 win and course record. 6th overall
  • The Bear 100 2nd place and 7th fastest women’s time in history. 15th Overall
  • 2018 Moab Red Hot 50k Win and 10th overall
  • 2018 Quicksilver 100k Win and Course Record

Heather Fischer


Heather has an extensive background in racing and coaching. While she continues to have a successful career racing on the road she loves working with athletes to assess their strengths, sharpen their skills and smash their goals. She is a sprint specialist that thrives in fast paced crit racing but has fallen in love with mountain biking and the longer off-road challenges, what she calls gravel adventuring. As a multi-discipline athlete she knows the importance of technical skills development alongside fitness gains. She has coached a wide range of athletes from beginners to collegiate champions; amateurs to professionals. She will keep your goals in focus as you navigate training, racing and life. She believes in the importance of balancing recovery, training and nutrition and helping you discover what works best for you. Her experience in high performance has given her a large appreciation for building the mental strength required to take on a big event. Heather loves hearing your race stories and laughing at life's unexpected turns.

Philosophy: My goal is for every athlete to leave me having challenged their way of thinking, learned more about themselves, increased their understanding of endurance training and nutrition and smashed through what they had previously considered their self-limitations. Building more confident and happy athletes is what I consider success as a coach.

Jonathan (Jon) Clinthorne, PHD


Jonathan (Jon) Clinthorne is an ultraendurance athlete with a doctorate in Human Nutrition from Michigan State University. Growing up as a competitive swimmer, the idea of training for 2 hours a day when training for ultramarathons did not seem outlandish, so he jumped right in. During college he decided to pursue nutrition as a full-time career, falling in love with the biochemistry of ultraendurance athletics. He has run over 50 ultramarathons, including twelve 100 mile races. Jon has self-experimented with just about every nutrition approach and over the years found what works and doesn’t work. He specializes in evidenced based nutrition counseling that is combined with his deep practical knowledge of sport. His philosophy is that there is no “one size fits-all” approach to endurance nutrition and instead prefers to work with his clients to determine which evidence-based approach will fit them best. He serves on the Board of Directors along with being the Course Director for the High Lonesome 100. When not running you can find Jon skiing or hiking in the mountains of Colorado.

Kimberly Moritz


Since my earliest days, I've carried a burning competitive spirit - a trait my father loves to share with everyone. I can still vividly recall my elementary school days, huddled with a partner, plotting strategies for a 3-legged race, knowing deep down that victory was well within our grasp if we put our minds to it. And yes, we emerged victorious. This unwavering determination has remained a constant thread throughout my life.

My distinctive perspective comes from wearing two hats – that of an athlete, currently immersed in rigorous training for my upcoming races, and that of a coach, guiding fellow athletes on their journey to attain their aspirations. I possess a profound understanding of the intricate process of setting achievable yet demanding goals and the relentless dedication required to attain them.

As a coach, my mission is clear: to provide focus, encouragement, and support to my athletes, helping them surpass their goals. With seven successful finishes at the grueling Leadville 100 MTB race, coupled with a background in cross-country racing on the East Coast, I've gained deep insights into training, nutrition, and the mental toughness required when things don't go your way.

Bringing this wealth of knowledge to my coaching practice, I hold certifications in Personal Training, Cycling, PMBIA Certified Instruction, PPR Certified Pickleball Instruction, PSIA Ski Instruction, Maximus Strength Method Training, Thai Massage, USAC Certification Level 3 Coaching, and Training Peaks 1 & 2 Coaching Certification. Together, let's achieve your goals and reach new heights.

Notable achievements:

  • 7-Time Leadville 100 MTB Finisher, with her most recent victory in 2023.
  • 2018 British Columbia Bike Race Finisher (7-day Stage Race throughout BC).
  • 2017 1st Place in the 12-mile swim around Key West (3-person female team).

Ben Dicke


My primary passion as a runner and a coach are ultra marathons, especially the 100 mile distance. I believe that if an athlete has the will and drive to tackle ultra distances, we can find a way to make it happen. I relish opportunities in helping athletes reach big goals.

My running journey began in college where I was awarded the coveted “Most Dedicated Walk-on” award at our annual athletics banquet. And while I never posted any record-breaking times, I definitely learned to grin and bear it through a grueling training season. When I discovered ultra marathons in 2006, I was instantly hooked.

Since then, I have helped athletes prepare for and cross finish lines at ultras around the globe including the Western States 100, Leadville Trail 100, Bighorn 100, Vermont 100, Old Dominion 100, Wasatch 100, Javelina 100, and others, alongside a host of races at 50k, 50 mile, and 100k distances.I have also coached athletes to PRs at some of the world's most prestigious marathons including New York City, Chicago, and Boston.

Every athlete is a unique individual. And every athlete will benefit from an individualized training plan. That uniqueness begins with both their genetic composition as well as the factors that have brought them to this moment. Those factors will include the more obvious: current physical build, years of athletic training and competition, past injuries, diet, etc. Factors may also include data that is more covert such as: locations where the individual has lived, life stressors, personal drive, and numerous others. My training plans are designed to give athletes the tools to achieve goals and milestones within a proven system that accounts for an individual’s work/life/family obligations.

Brad Stahlman


My name is Brad Stahlman and I am an athlete who doesn't come from an athletic or running background. Entering this lifestyle of training as an endurance athlete required a lot of dedication and support along the way.

I’m 17 years into a lifestyle transformation from 90 lbs. overweight and inactive, to an accomplished ultrarunner and coach. This transformation continues every day but started with a shift in my mindset when I realized I had difficulty playing in the yard with my daughters due to my physical health.

My life purpose revolves around faith, family, fitness, and fellowship. By day, I’m a husband to my beautiful wife, father of 4 daughters and a full-time engineering manager. Setting a good example for them, is priority 1.

I love ultrarunning because it keeps me healthy, but equally, it teaches me about life – endurance, perseverance, fellowship with a supportive community, and faith – the ability to relentlessly keep moving forward.

My successful journey has given me a platform to encourage and build up others looking for that same transformation. Significant individuals poured into me, convincing me I could do more with each step. Now it's my turn – to help others accomplish feats most people believe are impossible. You can do tough stuff! I know what it takes to make it through the finish line, and I can help you get there too.

Skyler Kottenstette


Coach Sky is the definition of a multisport athlete — she learned how to swim before she could walk, and has been pushing the boundaries and distance ever since through triathlon, gravel cycling, ultrarunning, and mountaineering. Moving from competitive swimming to collegiate triathlon to ultrarunning/cycling, Sky has had experience racing in every distance from 5k to ultras and has competed in ITU World Championships, USAT Collegiate Nationals and Age Group Nationals. But most of her experience as an athlete and coach was found in challenging solo adventures such as the Wonderland Trail 100, White Rim 100, and bucket-list ultracycling routes.

Sky is passionate about sharing her enthusiasm for sport through coaching — her aim is to help athletes push their limits and accomplish their racing goals, but more importantly to cultivate healthy habits and love for sport that will last a lifetime.

Working full time in aerospace engineering, Sky has experienced the demands of balancing work, school, training, and family and embodies the ‘whole athlete’ approach to training. She helps athletes with limited time prioritize their goals and understand the importance of striking the balance between discipline in training versus flexibility.

With 10+ years experience coaching swimmers, ultrarunners, and triathletes through her business independently and through Life Time Fitness, Sky emphasizes athlete-coach connection, data-driven training progression, and injury prevention.
