Coaching Services

Paris Roubaix ~ Arenberg Forest

Bradley Wiggins, Mark Cavendish, Nicole Cooke and Jens Voigt; none of them have used flamme rouge Coaching Services.  Neither did any of these outstanding athletes reach the peak of their physical abilities through natural talent alone.

Throughout their careers they received constant help, guidance, mentoring and support from teams of trusted advisors.  Professionals and artisans who offered them clear, objective, impartial guidance on their subjective, physical and emotional needs. 

Champions don't become champions on ability, talent and hard work alone.  They are supported by a lot of equally but diversely talented people working very hard behind the scenes to make sure that all the things that are meant to happen, happen when they are meant to happen. 

It's as much use being the fittest, fastest, strongest rider the week after the championships, as it is the week before.  The upset, the pain and the result remain the same.  Close, but no cigar!

Our Coaching Services are an amalgam of our Testing, Training and Fitting Services.  All the best bits rolled into one package but at less cost than the sum of the parts. 

Life is too hard, and time is too short and valuable for you to have to worry about planning your cycling.  So why not let us take the pain of planning away from you and let you get on with what you do best, riding your bike.

Due to the nature of the services offered, flamme rouge Coaching Services are only available to Island residents.  If you're not a resident then the flamme rouge Training Services could be just what you're after.
