Coaching is more than just building engines or skill in riders. Of equal importance but often over looked is teaching robust psychological and preparation techniques. A good example is with winter coming and increases in training volume, often in dark and cold weather. Having your kit in top working order is vital to ensure consistant and safe training sessions. Now is the time to check your equipment, I did my winter checks this week and reinstated a wheel I knew to be on its last legs after several seasons including racing the cobles of Belguim and long coaching/training miles. I’m fully CYTECH approved for supporting my coaching services but if you’re not confident make sure you get your equipment serviced by a competent mechanic. Its vital assurance for your head when miles from home in the dark.
