A complete service for the mountain bike rider and racer...
Personal Mountain Bike Training - Comprehensive planning of the days, months and years of your development as an athlete.
After an initial questionnaire and consultation (in person or by phone) I will outline the main work areas and suggest a plan for the year ahead (remainder of the season if mid year). Once we agree to proceed I produce an outline annual plan, provide monthly training plans, a template training diary and all relevant session plans. Contact is at least once per week, by phone (calling me at an agreed time) and / or email, after I have received a completed training diary for that week. At this time we may tweak the monthly plan depending on progress, health or other variables. I do not limit email contact time, and expect contact to increase in regularity close to important events. I find that a pattern usually develops after the initial settling in period. Prices Current Availability
Skills Coaching - Improve your mountain bike technique for endurance racing.
Great for any rider to enhance their endurance racing technical skills and is a great add-on to Personal Mountain Bike Training (also makes a great present!). After an equipment analysis and warm up I will work with you to improve your riding technique, using on and off the bike demos, run throughs and feedback. The session will be focused, fun and fulfilling. I can deliver group or individual sessions (groups of up to six). Sessions can be single or regular. Usually skills coaching is limited to the Chilterns area but I have also pre- ridden courses with riders and will travel by agreement. Due to the variety of applications please contact me for further details. Prices
NB - Skills coaching will not be available again until Summer 2013.

Mountain Bike Guiding - Just get out and ride.
Group or individual guided rides through the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (and with some good trails to boot!). The route can be entirely tailored to your ability and requirements and will be sure to include some skills, racing and training tips as we ride. This is a great way to ride some of the best natural trails in the South. Available for full or half days, a half day can work perfectly after a morning skills session. Prices
NB - Limited availablity on request.
Fitness Session Coaching - Motivational one-on-one coaching.
An add-on for Personal Mountain Bike Training only, this takes a prescribed training session and is overseen by me. Perfect during race build up or periods when motivation needs a boost, I will check form, give feedback and encourage you during the session to ensure that you get the most effective workout. This can be a single or regular session for Personal Mountain Bike Training clients. Prices
Racing Consultancy - Inspirational and insightful, packed full of top tips.
Great when combined with Personal Mountain Bike Training or as a stand alone, for individuals or small groups. Time can be divided between on and off the bike, or it can be entirely classroom (or cafe!) based. Consultancy areas may include course pre-riding, race strategy, pacing, racing mindset, warm up, equipment choice, equipment set up, race day nutrition, sponsorship issues and more... basically anything that will help you to achieve your best performance when it counts.

Single Event Training - For big event impact, fast.
A one to three month training package for those targeting a key event. After a questionnaire and phone consultation I will provide a training plan for the period. After this, contact is limited to once per month, at which stage we may make minor tweaks to the original plan. Great if teamed with Skills Coaching, Fitness Coaching or Racing Consultancy. Prices
