Testimonial: I really can't find the words to express how much working with a coach has changed my life. Rafeeq made me realize anything, not just finishing an ultra endurance mountain bike race is attainable. Without his help I would not be the person I am today.
My goal event was the Munga, an ultra endurance mountain bike race across a semi desert located in South Africa in the midst of summer. For 12 months I trained with Rafeeq from RIDEANDRACE and this is the first time in my life that I used a structured training plan and worked with a coach.
Rafeeq is incredibly professional and knowledgeable. I went into the event mentally and physically prepared for everything and despite it being a challenging event I felt strong throughout.
Thanks for the encouragement, pushing me to get fitter and stronger, guidance, training specificity and perfectly balanced preparation. I am immensely grateful for all of your effort and highly recommend this for anyone wanting to take on a challenge, no matter how big or small it may be.
