Chasing the Pros

Road cycling is a punishing amateur sport – the highs of finishing a challenging sportive, Gran Fondo or difficult challenge event and the lows.

Pressures of work, family life, illness and injury, or a global pandemic, can get in the way of reaching our goals. Keeping motivated year-on-year sometimes becomes hard and we plateau.

As an academic at the world’s leading Sports University, Nick has taken an in-depth approach to developing this book.

Like many Nick loves bikes, riding them fast and watching pros race. University teaching, writing and a family life, leaves Nick with little time to be a training God and he’s no cycling champion.
