Every VELD plan is personalised for you and your goals and includes training sessions which have been fine-tuned by me while I have been training for the biggest races in the world.
Whether it's on a one-to-one basis, as a small group or within a club environment, I can deliver practical workshops looking at your bike-handling skills, fine-tuning specific off-road techniques which will make you a more efficient racer, especially under pressure.
Please contact me for a bespoke quote for practical skills coaching.
My coaching principles are centred around the belief that I can help you make positive improvements to your fitness, even when you come up against the everyday barriers of modern life: lack of time, a busy job, travelling for work, competing in other sports or wanting to spend time with family. That's why I will create a training plan which fits you and your lifestyle, maximising your potential with the time you have. Whether you're a professional, hobbyist, amateur or newbie, I would be honoured to be your coach.
My coaching style is personal, meaning I analyse your individual data and give you regular feedback to ensure you feel supported in your progress. You can read some testimonials below from my current clients - I hope you will be writing one of these testimonials one day!
World Superbike Rider
"Ian has helped me to return to Superbikes following two serious injuries, creating a personalised plan with the aim of maintaining my fitness during the rehabilitation period. On returning to racing, the fitness improvements were clear to see, so I have continued to work with Ian.
Having clear session plans on a day-to-day basis means I make the most of my time around a busy travel and race schedule"
Former Professional Cyclist
"I have been coached by Ian for 18 months and I worked with him during my final year as a professional rider. We really focused on specific cyclocross skills and fitness, while ensuring it complemented my training for the road, so that I could perform my best during the summer.
Since stepping back from professional racing and setting up the Clancy Briggs Academy, Ian has been key in providing a plan that makes the most of the time I now have available to train"
"I'd always been self-coached, and had plateaued without realising it. Ian created a personalised plan that somehow keeps stretching and stretching me. Thanks to a variety of tailored sessions, my FTP has gone up by nearly 50W in two months.... and it's still climbing. I hear 'scare stories' from other riders about how they have never spoken to their coach - it's all been online. Ian and I speak regularly and we have met up a couple of times. Not sure why, but I didn't expect a superhuman athlete to be such a - well - human being!"
