Flamme Rouge

Finish Line ~ Charly Gaul, LuxembourgWelcome to the flamme rouge website.  A coaching, development and support resource primarily for cyclists in the Channel Island of Jersey but read world wide by the magic of cyber space. 

Whether you're an Island Champion, a keen cyclist wanting to get fit for your first charity ride, or hoping to embark on a sportive or marathon endurance event, you may find something to help you right here.

Our Performance Evaluation Services will allow you to measure and re-measure your fitness to attain an understanding of every training pedal rev you undertake.  Get almost instant, real-time feedback on what works for you and what doesn't. 

If you need guidance, direction or support in attaining your sporting goals we have an athlete's tool box that can help you on your way.  From a 5 mile time trial to a 125 mile road race, sportive or an even longer event, our Weekend Warrior Performance Plan will guarantee improved performance and a successful outcome.

If coaching or training plans aren't your thing, then take a look at our ever expanding Training Drills section.  Here we will place individual turbo and road training drills and explain how they might help you attain the results you're after.  Your very own pick and mix of pain!

Our (sometimes) concise Factsheets give basic information, advice and guidance on how to improve your riding, through correct training, supportive nutrition strategies and adopting the correct mental attitude.  Some are more technical than others but all will help you become a fitter, faster, stronger rider.

The Cyclosportives section speaks for itself.  It gives an account of the European events I've done in the past and the ones I plan to do this year.  Hopefully it will inspire those of you that have yet to do one to take the plunge.  You won't regret it.

Don't keep doing the same things and expect different results.  You can't just do more of what you did last time harder and for longer and expect a better performance.  Try something different, take a test, train to a plan and win some races.  What's the worst that can happen?

Happy Riding.
