Jonathan Melville   Breakaway Coaching and Analytics

BCAs (Breakaway Coaching and Analytics) vision as a cycling and triathlon coaching company is to combine the overlooked power of in-depth data analysis and sports science along with the riders needs in order for athletes to reach levels of fitness they did not know they possessed.


My name is Jonathan Melville and I started coaching university students towards the end of my undergraduate degree, having been involved with road cycling for a number of years as a racer. In supporting these students, I was able to apply cycling training models to other sports with successful results. This led to the creation of BCA with a focus on road cyclists.

My experience and qualifications allow for the combination of both Sport and Data Science to help plan and analyse rider performance.

Recognising the importance of the relationship between a coach and a rider, I believe in unlimited contact time to make sure we can keep an open discussion about your training needs.
