I can’t say enough about coach Dylan. I joined Darkside in late 2014 in preparation for the 2015 Whistler Ironman Canada. Since working with Dylan, I’ve raced my way to Top 10 finishes at both Victoria Ironman 70.3, and the Whistler 70.3, and in particular he’s dispensed TONS of super valuable training and racing tips. I feel that his coaching has helped me improve year after year, and as a bonus it’s a super great group of athletes that train with Darkside.
