About the hosts
Darryl is definitely the least technical guy in the Cycling 360 peleton, but there is no denying his love and passion for the bike. He adds a nice balance to the mix by bringing his unbridled enthusiasm and fun loving attitude to each of the podcasts, and really enjoys the interaction he has with his co-hosts.
He’s a bone fide social media warrior who loves meeting and interacting with cyclists from all over the World. A native of Canada, Darryl realized that he needed to relocate in order to cycle year round so he uprooted his family and moved them to Austin, Texas.
Along the way, Darryl has been involved in many different industries and locations. So many, that we couldn’t let him list them all here for fear of running too far down the page. But we can tell you that he aims to keep his workload with a heavy emphasis on the industries of fitness and tourism….working with companies such as Marriott, Van Houtte Coffee Inc., Turtle Tours Nevis, Austin FIT Wellness, and Step Ahead Shoes. Additionally, Darryl has a strong background in fitness and nutrition counseling and we rely on him over at Cycling 360 as our resident fitness expert.
His cycling blog, www.lovingthebike.com, is quickly becoming a favorite digital media hub for bike lovers around the world. When not hard at work developing valuable strategies to launch his clients into social media stardom, this devoted husband, father of three, and avid cyclist can be found riding the back roads of the Texas Hill Country or conversing with clients and fans on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and so many other funky cool places.
Victor is our resident professional bicycle fitter and overall cycling and bicycle industry expert. Victor, has been fitting bicycles to people and helping them hone their technique for over twenty five years. Has teaches clinics and workshops for USAT coaches and athletes on bicycle fit, efficiency and technique. He also works closely with coaches and medical professionals to educate them on bicycle fit and how the body interacts with a bicycle.
After years as a triathlete, then bike racer; American College of Sports Medicine trainer, and fitness testing specialist he began to apply his knowledge and experience to bicycle fit. Victor studied bike fitting in the mid eighties, and continues to study and consult with some of the most respected bicycle fitters and builders in the industry.
Victor is also a frame builder/designer, master mechanic, and wheel builder.
25+ years ago he founded a high end retail bicycle store to supply custom fit bicycles to triathletes, and road cyclists. He has also been an importer and distributor of bicycles, and offers consulting on mechanics and fit to bicycle shops and the bicycle industry.
He is owner of Bicycle Lab. Bicycle Lab.com is a small boutique studio that specializes in bicycle fitting and teaching cyclists how to interact with their bicycles. Linkedin, Twitter @bicyclelab, Facebook
