Damon Telepak

Coach (Gravel/Off-Road Endurance, Mountain Biking, Road Racing, and Cyclocross)


Damon Telepak has been an avid, life-long cyclist and describes his coaching style as “motivationally-minded”.  Although versed in the metrics and methodology of performance-based coaching, Damon finds the biggest gains in athletes by inspiring and empowering them achieve more than they thought they were capable of.  He couples this approach with trying to find further gains in an athlete’s performance by improving core strength, prescribing daily bodywork to improve durability, addressing overall nutrition, discussing micronutrients & key-minerals, encouraging proper sleep cycles, focusing on mental preparedness, and offering race day tactics & execution.  A common mantra he tells his athletes: “Focus on what you can control – the rest will fall into place.”

In addition to coaching Damon also helps organize & run cycling events such as Lake Placid Smashfest, The Cycling Formula’s Vermont Gravel Camp, and the Landmine MTB Classic.  He’s also an avid proponent of youth cycling and through The Cycling Formula works with leagues such as NEHSCA and Vermont Youth Cycling.  Damon enjoys mountain biking (his family has a home in Moab and he’s probably ridden every single trail there), as well adventure gravel riding and group road rides.  He resides in southern New England.
