A little bit about me.

First of all, thank you for visiting my website. I hope you find the information you’re looking for here, and if you wish to contact me please do at oli@cyclingperformancecoaching.co.uk.

I first found my love for the sport of cycling in 2013. I was hooked.

In 2015, I went on to start racing under the colours of Beeston Road Club. A club which taught me many important lessons about race tactics, training and introduced me to many important figures in the sport.

In 2016, I continued to race in the UK at amateur level and in September began the Cycling Performance Degree at Writtle University, Essex, where I would discover my interest in how the body works and reacts to training.

The Cycling Performance Degree attracted a lot of attention, being the only degree in the world of its kind. I began to help a few riders I knew with their training, mostly advising them during the winter months.

This became addictive. I wanted to see the riders progress and when one rider started to show signs of dramatic improvement from my advice, it filled me with pride.

This is where my love for coaching and helping people reach their own potential originated from.

In 2017, I spend the first half of the season racing in France. The racing was relentless, entirely different from that I was used to in the UK. And quite frankly, I got my head kicked in out there. I then returned to the UK in July and realised how stronger I had become from the hard European races.

I then returned to France in 2018 to race again. Competing in many of the same races I did the previous year, but bettering my results massivly. Seeing this improvement gave me the same kind of joy I felt from seeing others achieve.

In November 2018 I began my coaching business. And already I have had the opportunity to work with some truely incredible athletes. I seek to expand my business and run it as my full time job by 2025.

Cycling is my passion, and along with that is coaching others within the sport I am passionate about. My passion for cycling shows throughout my coaching, I take real interest in my athletes and strive for their progression as much as I do my own.

In 2019, I will again return to France to race semi-professionally. I will also be continuing with my coaching and regularly visiting the UK to catch up with my athletes.

I cannot possibly write down my whole story on this one page. But I am always happy to offer my advice on the experiences I have had over my years cycling and racing.

A big thank you to my coached athletes, anyone who has been part of my journey so far, and Nimble Fox Media for helping me with this website.

Thanks for reading, see you on the road.
