Will Riffelmacher
Will is a 26 year old graduate of Harvard. He is currently enrolled in Law School. Princeton, NJ is home but he is currently spending the summer in California. He has been racing for Fiordifrutta Elite Cycling Team since 2007. He enjoys hiking and cooking in his spare time when not on the bike of course. Will was a member of the USA Junior National Rowing Team, two time Jr. Lightweight indoor World Rowing Championship Silver Medalist and Varsity Heavyweight Rower at Harvard. While in College, friend and team mate at Harvard, Jordan Sagalowsky repeatedly would beat Will up on the bike as a way to cross train for rowing. He started training and racing for cycling in 2006. He meet and started working with Coach Cummings after becoming a Cat 3. Will feels P2P dramatically changed his training and results.

"Before I started working with Coach Cummings, I had just upgraded from a USA Cycling Category 4 to Category 3 racer during my first full year of racing. I had an extensive endurance sport background- I was on a Division I National Championship winning rowing team- but I did not know how to train specifically for cycling. Coach Cummings crafted a specifically tailored training plan to help me develop cycling specific fitness.
Within a few weeks of working with Coach Cummings, I upgraded to Cat 2 and he was instrumental in tailoring my training to be competitive in Pro1/2 and NRC races. What I like most about working with Coach Cummings is his ability to create a highly individualized training program that allowed me to be competitive at the elite level from March to September without burning out."
