Coalville , United Kingdom
I am an Association of British Cycling Coaching Coach and IM University Certified Coach. I am contracted to provide cycle and triathlon coaching services to Matt Bottrill Performance Coaching Ltd.
I started road cycling in 1996, riding and racing time trials with my local club. I continued this until my mid 20's when I took up triathlon and competed in events up to half iron man distance. When I returned to pure cycling several years later I was coached by Matt Bottrill, a national champion and competition record holder. By training properly I made big gains and my TT times rapidly got faster and my results improved. This progressed into me starting to work for Matt as a coach in 2015.
Over the years I have competed and taken part in national championship time trials, mountain bike racing, adventure racing, road racing, audax, sportives, duathlon and triathlon. This has given me a deep understanding of the demands of the events and provided valuable experience that I pass on to my coached athletes. In 2017 I qualified for and raced in the UCI GF World ITT champs in Albi, France.
I am an Association of British Cycling Coaching Coach, IM University Certified Coach and have taken the UK Anti Doping course for coaches. I have coached a range of abilities of cyclists and triathletes, from beginners to athletes competing in the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
