Steve Whittington-Coleman

Head Coach

Steve gained notoriety as a young rider with huge potential in the late 1980's, winning national and international races representing Great Britain as well as competing at world championships. As a junior Steve was already winning 1st category races against some of the best senior riders in the UK at the time. At the age of 17 years old, he was selected to represent Great Britain the following year at the 1992 Olympic games in Barcelona as part of the team time trial squad after recording impressive results during physiological tests. Only a matter of weeks after gaining Olympic selection he went to Belgium to compete in an international event, only to have a freak accident that resulted in the loss of a section of left lung during a life saving operation. Undeterred by limited lung capacity and losing his place in the Olympic squad and world championships that year, Steve went to live and race in France, racing initially for a team in Clermont-Ferrand under manager Jean Claude Rochette (R.I.P), then the renowned Vendee U sqaud under Jean-Rene Bernadeaux. However, realising that the lung limitations were the end of his career, Steve retired from racing at the end of the '93 season. "It was the end of the road, and the end of my dream."


Upon returning to cycling some 10 years ago, weighing in at a whopping 108kg and after years of heavy smoking, Steve set about the arduous task of coaching himself back to fitness. Only 3 years later he was competing in the Granfondo World Road race Championships in France and finished respectably in the top half of the field after 108 miles of racing in 30 degree temperatures. Following this Steve developed a keen interest in performance coaching and in 2019, started Zone6 Coaching.
