Karen's testimonial

Chris step changed my technique and gave my training the necessary structure so that in a very short amount of time I started to notice the difference in my cycling. Chris’ approach is incredibly thorough and individual, I quickly felt that he understood my aims and built training plans that were achievable given my work commitments.  Nothing is too much trouble for Chris and in spite of me being an average cyclist who’s never going to win any medals he applies himself to my training as if one day I might.

Mark TT

“Chris started coaching me during the winter with the aim of improving my TT times the next season. Following an assessment of my fitness Chris sent me a training plan for each week based mainly around my commuting to work due to family commitments.

Coaching also focused on my technique, such as pacing a Time Trial, position on a TT bike and even a session practising entries and exits of roundabouts. I found Chris’ …

Jamie

As a Junior rider, I was initially looking for a coach who could accompany me on Wednesday afternoon sessions in place of sport at school and Chris has been extremely accommodating in creating and supervising inventive sessions for each week. In addition, he has also guided me through my first full season of road racing, advising me on which races to enter and the tactics that I should employ. As a result of Chris’ advice and structured training, my performance has improved dramatically and I soon surpassed my initial aim of racing in a selection of Surrey League road races, …
