The value of a coach to your own progress should never be underestimated and anybody wanting to get the best return on the time they invest in their sport will find no other service or product that brings them a faster improvement.


Rob is a TrainingPeaks Level 2 certified coach and works with cyclists and triathletes who invest in their own performance by owning and using a powermeter. In some cases, a heartrate monitor is sufficient although unlikely to yield the same performance gains as when training with power. All performance coached athlete programs include a TrainingPeaks account from which training plans are set and recorded.

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 20 years Rob has been prolific with his coaching and mentoring activities in many sectors of the cycling industry.
