“It was a genuine please having Steve Ilg in my {spin} class today. I became aware of Steve in 1988, when our Outdoor Adventures staff used his book, The Outdoor Athlete, for sport specific training. It was even more exciting to have such an endorsement of my spin class instruction. Many thanks Steve! I look forward to Saturday.” – Scot Davis,
