As a coach and trainer, Matthew’s client list has included multiple National Champions, a World Champion, and many successful local racers, fondo and recreational riders, and entry-level enthusiasts.
Head coach for the Marymoor Velodrome Cyclocross practice sessions, Matthew has taught cyclocross fundamentals to thousands of cyclists over his close to two decades at the helm. Athletes who first learned the basics of Cyclocross from him have gone on to win National Championships and international distinction, and to podium placings at the World Cup and World Championship level. Riders at all levels of the performance spectrum can and do call on Matthew for his skills instruction, including professional teams who have been known to send new recruits to him for skills assessment and old hands to him for refresher courses and refinement.
As a bicycle fit specialist, Matthew has worked for many national, regional, and even World and Olympic champions, and hundreds of cyclists at the recreational and sport-performance end of the spectrum. He is a Trek certified bike fitter, and a F.I.S.T. certified specialist in triathlon bicycle fitting. A many-time district champion in the Time Trial, he is uniquely well positioned to understand the needs of the timed specialist disciplines, and both the current and previous holders of the hour record at the Jerry Baker Memorial Velodrome attained those marks in positions developed in his fit studio.
Matthew Hill is a Category 1 bike racer in the Road, Cyclocross, and Mountain Bike disciplines. He counts among his accomplishments 2 national championships, many district championships, and over 100 victories in races across disciplines.
Off the bike, Matthew is a first degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, which he teaches at the Ballard Jiu-Jitsu school in Seattle, WA.
