Dirk Friel, Co-Founder of TrainingPeaks

This week, Coach Frank sits down with Dirk Friel, the co-founder and Chief Evangelist of TrainingPeaks...the essential software for athletes. It's what we use to coach our athletes, and what is used by countless other coaches, athletes, and pros to quantify and track their training.

Frank and Dirk talk about the origins of TrainingPeaks, Dirk's background in racing and coaching, the future of the software, Skimo racing, and more. It's a great conversation with a legend in the world of endurance sports and training!
