“If you’re looking for a coach who can bring you to the top of your game, Dario is the one. From training to nutrition to bike fit to recovery, his expertise and supportiveness are unparalleled. I have learned so much from his “wholistic” approach to many crucial aspects of training, and would highly recommend him to any athlete who wants to achieve a goal or pursue a dream.”
