Authentic Athlete Engagement -  Customised Coaching Tools -  Discipline Specific Knowledge.

"The best thing as an athlete is to know that your coach understands and supports your unique view point. This synergy is integral to my coaching style.

I believe consistent results in cycling are achieved by intentional work on the fundamental areas for each athlete. My coaching process begins with drawing out the rider’s underlying motivation and attributes. These form measurable personalised goals for training and racing, spanning: psychology, physiology and tactics. In turn, I give rider’s effective training plans and relevant guidance.

I maintain high standards for my coaching and professional development by: building experience through face to face, group and 1-2-1 coaching, expanding my knowledge through research and developing my coaching personality through reflection and mentoring."
