Athlete Coaching

In 2008 Kevin Pauwels approached Marc and asked him to coach Kevin. Kevin is very introverted, and his father hoped that Marc could help him to loosen up a bit more and lift him to new levels. Year after year Kevin became stronger and stronger and in 2012 he became the absolute number one in the cyclocross world. Meanwhile more and more athletes wanted to be coached by Marc, which resulted in the setting up of a dedicated facility – the 185 Coaching Center.
