Jennie Reed / Head coach

Head Coach Jennie Reed is the only track cyclist in history to go from World Champion in a sprint discipline (Keirin) to winning the Olympic Silver medal in an endurance event (Team Pursuit). Reed raced for the United States in three consecutive Olympic Games, won four World Championship medals, collected 30 World Cup podium results and won countless National Championships during an extraordinary career that spans two decades. She retired from competition after her successful bid for a Silver medal at the 2012 London Olympic Games.

Reed is the Head Coach at Jennie Reed Racing and has been developing champion track cyclists for over a decade. Her knowledge of the sport comes from 20 years of racing at the highest level, under the guidance of respected coaches throughout the world. During her racing career she trained under National Team coaches of Canada, France, the United States and Australia. Only a handful of coaches in the world understand the demands and complexities of track cycling as well as Jennie Reed.

“If you’re willing to put in the hard work, you’ll be surprised by what you can achieve.” — Jennie Reed

Tela Crane / Performance Coach

Performance Coach Tela Crane started racing in the Pacific Northwest for Seattle-based junior development teams Gregg’s/Trek and RAD Racing NW. As a junior, she raced on the road, track and cyclocross. Since graduating to the elite ranks, Crane has won National titles in the Sprint, Keirin, Team Sprint, Scratch race, Omnium, Team Pursuit and Madison. Very few cyclists in the world can claim success across all track disciplines, nor possess the physiology, discipline and race acumen to deliver such results. In addition to coaching, Crane is currently racing on the road and track as a pilot for TEAM USA’s blind tandem. Their goal is to earn a medal at the 2020 Paralympic Games.

Crane has coached and mentored juniors of all levels for almost 15 years. She worked as the junior program manager for the Jerry Baker Velodrome in Redmond, Washington; and more recently as a lead instructor with the Connie Cycling Foundation program at the Velo Sports Center in Los Angeles, CA. Crane has taught numerous clinics for beginner, elite and masters riders. If anyone knows how much track racing can improve your level on the road or in criteriums, it’s Coach Crane. She went from pure track cyclist to racing at the Para-cycling World Championships in the road race and 40km Time Trial in just six months! Coach Crane is excited to share her extensive knowledge of the sport to help you reach your goals.

“The most important thing about training is that you enjoy the process and celebrate the progress you make along the way.”
