Stephen has combined his passion for sports science and cycling by developing HPTek - a cycling-specific coaching service.
With over 12 years experience as a professional coach Stephen has worked with a variety of successful athletes including UCI Hour Record Holders, UCI World Tour riders, U/23 Australian National champions and Masters World Track Champions. Using the same coaching methods Stephen also works closely with many recreational cyclists to help them achieve their sporting goals.
Inspired by how the human body adapts to exercise training and intrigued by the mechanisms behind it Stephen completed a PhD in Biomedical Sciences with a focus on exercise nutrition and training adaptation.
During this time he coached a handful of athletes and after he completed his PhD he developed HPTek and started coaching full time.
