L’intervention d’Oscar dans l’équipe était une volonté du staff technique d’apporter une aide aux coureurs sur la spécificité de la technique en descente. Aujourd’hui, l’importance des descentes est de plus en plus grande pour créer des différences à haut niveau. L’expérience et le projet d’Oscar nous ont donc incité à placer plusieurs journées dans nos stages de préparation. De même, nous proposons à nos coureurs en difficulté ou désirant renforcer leur techniques et qualités en descente un travail plus fréquent au cours de la saison. Nous avons également travaillé avec Oscar sur la technique du train sprint pour améliorer la capacité à appréhender les trajectoires en groupe avant un sprint final. La motivation et les compétences d’Oscar ont permis que ces journées soient des réussites et apportent de la confiance aux coureurs à aborder ces situations décisives en course.
The intervention of Oscar in the team was a willingness of the technical staff to help riders on the specificity of the downhill technique. Today, the importance of descents is greater and greater to create differences at top level. The experience and the project of Oscar thus encouraged us to place several days in our preparation training camps. Similarly, we offer to our riders who are struggling or who wish to reinforce their downhill techniques and skills more frequent work with him during the season. We also worked with Oscar on the sprint lead out to improve the ability to grasp group trajectories before a final sprint. The motivation and skills of Oscar have made these days a success and give riders confidence to tackle these decisive racing situations.

J’ai rencontré Oscar pour la première fois durant la Vuelta 2013 lorsqu’il m’a proposé ses services pour m’aider dans les descentes. Mais cela n’a pas été possible à l’époque car il était en contrat d’exclusivité avec Giant. A la fin de 2015, il fut libre donc j’ai été très heureux de pouvoir partager plusieurs expériences avec lui. Il m’a donné un grand nombre de conseils qui m’ont donné en confiance en course au moment d’aborder une descente. Je ne serai pas le meilleur descendeur du monde mais avec Oscar, j’ai amélioré ma technique afin que les descentes ne soient plus une faille et un frein à ma progression.

I met Oscar for the first time during Vuelta 2013 and he proposed his service to help me to improve in descent. But it was not possible as he was in exclusivity contract with Giant. At the end of 2015, he was free, so I was really happy to be able to share some experiences with him. He give me a lot of advices which give me confidence in race. I will not be the best rider in descend of the world but with Oscar, I improve my skills in order to the descent doesn’t be a failing and a a brake on my progress.

3 anni fa siamo partiti con un primo stage con Oscar. Ora e diventato un progetto che ci portera al sucesso. Oscar ha una grande esperienza , il suo passato da atleta proffesionista e il lavoro con diversi atleti gli permette di vedere le cose da diversi punti di vista. Capisce bene come trasmettere agli atleti quello che hanno bisogno nel momento giusto.Le sue capacita tecniche gli permettono di fare vedere sulla bici come si affronta diversi tratti technici. Ha un modo molto calmo di lavorare. La sua capacita di analizzare in dettaglio e di capire quanto vale il dettaglio e enorme. Con Oscar possiamo lavorare in dettaglio che altri neanche vedono, che per me pero fanno poi la differenza a quell livello dove noi lavoriamo.

I had a big pleasure to work closely with Oscar for 2 years riding for Giant Factory Off road Team.  And keep on working whenever it’s possible.
Absolutely the best technical coach I’ve ever worked with. He knows how to teach from basics to the top skills. In the right time for the rider. Course inspection, choosing lines, making tactic for the race – that are aspects where Oscar is always big help for me.

I enjoy every downhill now but that was not always the case.I had some sessions with you in which you taught me how to approach a downhill, when to brake and how to react on my bike.The way you explained and showed me how to ride the bike in the descends was impressive , and a very important reminder!! take every downhill as an exercise . Since then I improved a lot and started to enjoy my downhills, just on time to win the Olympic race in Rio which had a technical downhill in it!!

Bike handling skills are essential in cycling and triathlon. A lot of energy gets lost by bad cornering or time lost in the downhill. In triathlon this will also result in poor running performance. For that i am happy that i got to know Oscar Saiz in 2010. We worked together for 7 years in cycling and triathlon. Our athletes learned a lot from Oscar and got a lot more confidence on the bike. I hiope we can work together for a long time.
Met sportieve groeten,

I had the pleasure to take part in several camps with Oscar. Not only that I learned a lot about skills and riding, I also enjoyed all the trainings with Oscar a lot.

When it comes to MTB skills and advices, Oscar is a great teacher. He is very patient and can explain and show you the exercise detailed and easy to understand. It was always funny when he imitated my mistakes and showed me the way how not to do it.

For sure the different skills I learned with Oscar helps me to be faster at races, safe energy and have more fun.

I remember the tricks from Oscar and use the skills basically in every training I do.

Estos ejercicios, que sigo realizando a menudo, han conseguido que ganara en seguridad y confianza, lo que al final se ha traducido en una mejora significativa en mis tiempos en competición.

Nos gastamos un montón de dinero en tener nuestra bicicleta con los mejores componentes, en tener un entrenador con el que trabajar la parte física, un nutricionista que nos diga que comer y dejamos de lado la parte técnica.

Oscar helped me with descending skills, riding with him as he was coaching was a great help , he is a great mountain biker that can give great inputs on how improve technical skills, I would recommend everyone to have one of his clinics. Still today I remember some of his tips and try to finish my rides with some technical drills.

Mi experiencia con Óscar fue verdaderamente positiva. Además de conocer y dominar su bicicleta a la perfección, Óscar es un gran comunicador, por lo que es capaz de transmitir lo que siente sobre las dos ruedas y hacerte ver y tomar consciencia de todas aquellas cosas que son mejorables. Sus consejos no sólo me han servido para ser más rápido, sino que además he ganado también en seguridad y confianza.

A la hora de hablar de la técnica del descenso pensamos de forma automática en las diferentes posiciones aerodinámicas que se pueden adoptar sobre la bici para obtener la máxima velocidad pero existen otros parámetros igual de importantes a tener en cuenta como son la trazada de la curva, la gestión de la frenada para una óptima salida de curva y la distribución del peso sobre la bici para potenciar el agarre que harán que ganemos en seguridad para una misma velocidad o incluso superior y eficiencia, algo especialmente importante en el ciclismo de ruta donde tras el descenso hay que encadenar otra subida o incluso jugarse la carrera al sprint. Con Oscar tenemos la posibilidad de analizar este conjunto de detalles sutiles de forma pormenorizada y establecer las pautas de entrenamiento para corregirlo e incluso potenciarlo.

I think in general in road cycling the downhill skills are still totally underestimated. Professional cyclists usually only do their efforts uphill and roll down afterwards without thinking to much about the technic. Due to safety reasons in normal traffic it’s also dangerous to push the limits. But it’s definitely possible to create training sessions with calculateable risks.
Oscar Saiz helped the Team Giant-Shimano with that in 2013. His tips and advises have been crucial for me to improve my technic in downhills. I put more attention in it since than and improved my technic same as my self confidence with it together.
Downhill training is absolutely recommendable for every ambitious cyclist. It’s not only about winning or loosing races. It’s about the energy you potentially loose as well, but also for the own safety with better skills you’re more save although you are able to go even more fast.
And in the end the speed is one fascinating part of cycling and that we all want to enjoy as save as possible.

Technique is an essential part in all disciplines of cycling. Oscar learned me basic skills to get more confidence on the bike and save energy like this. He has the unique sense to feel where the boundaries of each individual are and knows how to push these further step by step. No matter how your abilities are; when you’re eager to learn, Oscar is the right guy to bring you to a higher level.

Oscar es, sin duda alguna, una de las personas más profesionales que he conocido, tiene la capacidad de explicar como se realiza cada movimiento encima de la bicicleta, con una dedicación y un empeño inigualable involucrándose tanto en el trabajo y preparación como en el  corredor a nivel personal.

Mr Saiz was an idol to me when growing up and I got the chance to work with him in 2010 while riding for Rabobank Giant Off-road Team.
I have always had a good skill set on my bike but Oscar gave me a whole new perspective which have helped me a lot. I have filled my “toolbox” to almost complete on an XC bike. That have helped me to reach many of my goals such as medals in national champs as well as worldchamps 2014.

Oscar is professional and has a great sense of what it takes to succeed on and off the bike, and most of all, to challenge yourself and have fun while riding.

Training with Oscar Saiz took my skills to the next level. Working with him for the first time in 2013 was a game changer for me. I won the overall World Cup in 2014 & 2015. Continued work with him, paying attention to details and fine tuning every aspect of my riding style made it possible for me to become World Champion in 2017. Skills sessions with Oscar grew my game. I can‘t wait to take the next step.“

Training with Oscar brought me finally a better technique for jumping the barriers. I jump more and more. And this is all to thank to the fundamental changes Oscar made.

He is very good in explaining what he means and if still not clear he shows you how to do it! He is still himself so good with the bike.

I’m very thankful to have had the opportunity to learn something of Oscar.
