Coaching USA's Elite and Embracing Failure with Jim Miller

This week we sit down with Jim Miller, USA Cycling's Chief of Sports Performance and coach to many of USA's greats such as Tejay van Garderen, Kate Courtney, Kristin Armstrong, and Lawson Craddock to name a few.

Jim is the ultimate "coaches coach" and has been coaching elite level cycling for nearly 2 decades, and his work has developed amazing athletes and superstar performances, including world championships and Olympic medals.
