Rafeeq Safodien - UCI Level One Certified Coach, associate coach at Bike2Max Studio, I have a genuine passion for the sport and a long history in adapting my fitness for the different cycling disciplines. With a background in road racing my interest in cycling is now focused on mountain biking and solo ultra endurance racing such as 12hr, 24hr and un-supported adventure racing.
What I have found through ultra endurance cycling - The ability to go beyond my limits and rewrite my potential.
My area of expertise - As a coach I specialize in performance development for ultra-endurance cyclists using heart-rate and/or power based training.
Who would I like to work with? - A cyclist, male or female, who is willing to try and shape their lifestyle and environment to match their realistic aspirations.
Race experience - 12hr & 24hr solo road and mtb racing, self supported & semi supported ultra endurance racing, single day and multi-day stage racing. Having competed many cycling events, provincial and national, on and off road, the most memorable races are THEMUNGA, a DNF in 2015 inspired a second attempt in 2016, finishing 7th overall. A close second is the 2018 BIKINGMAN OMAN, a self-supported ultra endurance sprint race, finishing 8th overall and achieving a personal best by completing a 1000km race in less than 3 days.
Other ultra cycling achievements - Podium finisher at DARLING TTU 24 hour in 2018 and 2017. Top 5 finisher at Killarney 12 hour in 2018.
My mountain bike and road training and racing experience extends to - Single day racing, criteriums, time trials, XC, marathon and stage racing such as Cape Epic, Cape Pioneer, Wine2Whales.
