"Last summer was without doubt one of the best! I feel so fortunate to have found ZEP and to have had Paul as my coach. After 15+yrs of riding I decided it was time to ingest; to take myself seriously as a mountain bike and so it meant a lot that ZEP did too.
You were supportive and patient and clearly knew how to get me where I wanted to be… I doubt the feeling when I rode off and landed the Face to Black drop will ever go away! Best of all we had fun getting there. By the end of the season I was literally (and am still) riding beyond my wildest dreams. And for that I’ll forever be grateful to ZEP. Thank you!"
