After 17 years as either a triathlete or road cyclist, today marks the end of my time on the bike as a competitor.
Unfortunately over the last few years my health has not been great and this year has been one of the most challenging and I have had to make some tough decisions. In the end I decided that my body was no longer capable of the demands of training and racing.
I will be continuing with my coaching work and I hope that over the coming years I can really make Argonaut Cycle Coaching a success. Over the last 4 years alone I have assisted numerous riders reach their goals, including medals at state, national and Oceania championships, as well as over 150 top 10 results in open level (or higher) events. I have also completed over 350 bike fits and performance tests for riders and provided skills sessions that have helped riders improve their abilities on the bike.
While there have been some setbacks this year, most notably the lack of access to Stromlo Forest Park for the masterclass sessions, the coaching will continue and I look forward to helping many more riders reach their personal goals.
Finally, I am pleased to advise that from, 1 November 2014 I will once again be accepting applications for coached riders. Numbers will be limited based on my current coaching load at that time.
