Brian Walton

Head Coach

One of Canada's best-known cyclists, Brian’s career is filled with great achievements. Included among these is a solid 13th place finish, at age 22, in the team time trial at the ’88 Seoul Games, in his first Olympic appearance. In the 1995 Pan Am Games, Walton achieved a rare double feat winning both the points and road race within 48 hours. In 1996 at the Olympic Games in Atlanta, Brian had one of the best races of his life when he won the Silver Medal in the Points Race. What made his medal even more rewarding was his accomplishment came less than two months after knee surgery. In ’99 Walton defended his Pan Am road crown in Winnipeg with another superb solo victory. In 2000 he was a member of the Canadian Olympic Cycling team in Sydney competing in both the Points race and Road race.

 

At the professional level, he was a member of Team 7-11 from 1988–1990, Motorola Cycling Team 1991, 1992 and Team Saturn from 1993-2000. In 2006 Brian was elected into the British Columbia Sports Hall of Fame for all his accomplishments throughout his 17 year cycling career.

Before creating Walton Endurance in 2012, Brian was the President of Cadence Cycling and Multisport Center in Philadelphia where he had started 9 years earlier as the founder of the Training and Performance side of the business. Before becoming a partner of Cadence, Brian was the Team Director of Team Snow Valley out of Annapolis, MD. In his three-year tenure with Team Snow Valley, he guided them to USAC Jr. Club of the Year, USAC Club of the Year, as well as a top 10 ranking in the National Racing Calendar. Brian has been a top level coach for USAT where he was part of the performance enhancement team helped the U23 National team win the World Championship in 2005. Brian has also lectured at coaching clinics for USAT and is currently one of a select group of coaches that carries the highest level of coaching within USA Cycling. Brian currently lives in East Norriton, PA with his wife Dana of 14 years along with his three children where he coaches his kids Leah, 10, Jonas 8 and Anna 6 at Flag football and other sports.
