Endurance cycle coaching, driven by 27 years of experience and the latest technology for optimum performance gains. A proven history of delivering measurable performance improvements to endurance athletes all over the world.
Rob raced as an elite category cross country mountain bike athlete throughout the late 90s (ranked No.10 in the UK in 1998) before making a successful transition to solo endurance racing in 2003. He went on to become one of most successful and influential solo endurance racers in the UK. After accumulating an extensive collection of victories in big races in the UK, Europe and Canada, including a Masters 24 hour Solo World Championships title in 2005, he then progressed onto long-distance challenges. Rob was the first rider to complete the infamous South Downs Double unsupported. His palmarès includes victories in road racing, time trial, off-road duathlon, mountain bike cross country, cyclo-cross and mountain bike marathon. In 2013 Rob was inducted into the UK mountain biking Hall of Fame.
Rob started his coaching journey in 1995 as a volunteer skills instructor for West Thames Division of the British Cycling Federation. As his racing progressed other athletes started to seek his advice and he was soon helping others improve their performance. Over the next 25 years Rob has been prolific with his coaching and mentoring activities in many sectors of the cycling and motorsports industries.
Rob was a guest speaker at the 2020 TrainingPeaks Endurance Coaching Summit which was run virtually to 12,000 attendees from around the world. He is recognised as one the the UK's top bike fitters and collaborated with Simon Smart to create the studio AeroFit at Drag2Zero, World leaders in cycling aerodynamics. Rob is regularly invited to contribute to endurance, coaching and cycling magazines and podcasts.
