I contacted Dave in November 2006 as I had taken up road racing that year but had finished the season with zero points!
Naively I thought after being Welsh duathlon champion in 2003 that I could just cruise into road racing and climb the categories just like that.....how wrong I was!
I was a bit disheartened so started looking for a coach.
After a lot of research I found Dave Lloyds website and thought it was worth giving him a call.
After a ramp test and inspiring consultation I decided to ask Dave to be my coach.
I remember phoning him and saying, "You have my permission to push me as hard as you like".
I remember after the first weeks training lying on the sofa, knackered thinking how the hell am I going to keep this up but Dave
encouraged me with the words "Keep the Faith, your body will adapt!
And it did as I just keep improving.
In my first road race with Dave
and still Cat 4 (Tour of the Milburys, cat 2/3/4) I managed to bridge a 2 minute gap on my own from the bunch to the leaders and attacked with 4km to go.
also leads by example and is a fantastic cyclist who's cleaning up in the domestic sportives showing the whipper snappers how to do it.
I really recommend Dave
as a coach and unlike a lot of coaches Dave
really does care about you as a person and has great pride in what his
Money well spent!!!!
