"HARD WORK BEATS TALENT WHEN TALENT DOESN'T WORK HARD"

ABOUT ME

Steve whittington

As a former GB international, Olympic squad member, and former National champion as a youngster, experience has given me the ability to relate to, motivate, and understand cyclists, as well as plan effective training programmes.

 

In the early 90's I competed in world championships on the road and team time trial and regularly raced against notable riders such as George Hincapie and Jan Ulrich.  I won international races, and was winning domestic 1st cat races as a young junior.  My career looked promising until it took a turn in 1991 in Belgium shortly after gaining selection for the   team time trial at the Barcelona Olympics, when a freak racing accident left me in intensive care fighting for my life. During emergency surgery I lost a section of my left lung.  Any hopes of becoming world champion that year were gone and the Olympics were a distant dream.  Despite the accident I continued to race and spent a couple of seasons in France where I ended up riding under Jean Rene Bernadeaux in the renowned Vendee U squad, however, with limited lung capacity my career was all but over and I had to quit racing in September 1993.

I now coach full time using my own methodology derived from experience, and modern scientific technology available to monitor & assess performance.  If you're considering coaching whether you're an elite rider or a middle aged rider, get in touch.  Coaching unlocks hidden potential no matter how good you are.  Even the greatest cyclists in the world have coaches for that reason.  My goal is to turn you into a weapon!

After spending years “just riding my bike” and a few spin classes for training, working with Steve changed that! He has provided a specific training plan which addresses my weaknesses, fits in with my work/life but most importantly delivers results !
