Meet Team D3

Athletes who are coached through any of our three coaching options are considered members of Team D3. They share in the camaraderie and benefits of a diverse, passionate group of athletes. Team D3 athletes range in ability from beginner to elite, and they train in home towns that span between Canton of Vaud, Switzerland - to - Boulder, Colorado - to - San Diego, California. Beyond our coaching, we use a mix of technology, events, and of course, racing to bring athletes together. We recognize and celebrate these athletes below.
