Hi, My name is Richard, I am a TrainingPeaks level 2 and ABCC Level 3 Cycling Coach and I would love to help you become a faster cyclist, whether you are looking to finish your first sportive or target a national title, I have the tools and experience to help you get to where you want to be through smarter training to make more effective use of your time.
I mainly focus on coaching sportive, road racing, time trial, criterium, MTB and CX and have successfully helped riders achieve their goals in; Ride London 100, Etape du Tour, Maratona dles Dolomites and La Marmotte. Riders that I have coached have won; Norwegian Masters National Road Race Championship, Cayman Islands TT Championship twice and Cayman Islands Road Race Championship. I have also coached riders to qualify for the Island Games in road and MTB as well as countless masters riders to represent their country in the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships. I was also the New Zealand National under 19 road cycling squad coach. My achievements as an athlete include; multiple wins in elite level criterium and time trail races as well as racing for many trade teams on the UCI road race calendar at 2.2 level in the Tour of Southland and Tour of Wellington. I also raced in the UK national MTB series. The athletes that I enjoy working with the most are riders who want to improve their times or results to move up to the next racing category. I also follow a training plan similar to CPT Cycling coached riders on an ongoing basis and also take part in Gran Fondo events. I still enjoy riding and pushing myself as much as ever and this gives me a very relevant perspective to how coached riders feel in training, to experience this myself continually.
