Robert Wilhite has been athletic all his life. He began playing golf at age 13 in his home town of Memphis, TN. Even in high school, he qualified to play most organized sports but eventually focused solely on golf. He still holds the unique records of playing on the Varsity Golf team and qualified as its #1 player three consecutive years. After moving to Atlanta, GA, Robert assisted in creating and joined a motorcycle road racing team called 'Team Redeemed' and raced for three years in the southeast in the W.E.R.A. (Western Eastern Racing Association) series.
Next, he entered the golf business as an Assistant Golf Professional and began teaching golf with the primary focus being correct biomechanics. It was 1997 when Robert bought his first road bicycle and immediately fell in love with the sport. A few years later, Robert had the opportunity to play competitively as a PGA professional golfer and during this time, he used cycling as his major source for staying fit. While racing motorcycles, Robert obtained valuable experience in handling skills, balance and proper cornering (apexing). Combining his racing skills, a teaching background and an understanding of biomechanics, Robert has a very unique approach to proper fittings and coaching.
His clients includes beginners, recreational cyclists, professional triathletes like Carole Sharpless (GA's #1 women's professional triathlete) and racing teams. Recently in 2006, Robert was named Team Coach for the Union Ciclistica Latin of Georgia (UCL) professional cycling team based in Atlanta, Georgia. The team’s top rider, Oscar Mauricio Henao Jaramillo, recently won the very popular 2006 GA Cup southern racing series in September 2006, 2007 and 2008. No one has ever won 2 years in a row; much less 3.
Sports have been an integral part of Robert’s life and he has a tremendous passion, especially for cycling. Likewise, his passion as a teacher in the sport comes very natural. As you could imagine, it is very easy to relate to whatever topic he is covering. His desire is to help as many cyclists as possible learn correct cycling technique and understand the biomechanics behind each technique. "In that way", he says, "once you understand the basic concepts for each technique, you become your own teacher".
Robert and his bride Kelly currently reside in Atlanta, Georgia, home of MyCycleCoach.com.
