To me the RST Sport team is my Formula One pit crew, ready to squeeze every ounce of performance from my body. Whether it be in aerodynamics, nutrition, training, testing, racing, pursuiting or sprinting, every facet of my performance is recorded, measured, calculated and analysed finding improvements in speed, efficiency and recovery. RST is my personal sports institute devoted to making me faster.
I started working with Ric after many years of racing and self coaching having reached what I felt was a bit of a plateau. Ric’s approach suited me well – namely devising a fluid programme which looked to continually develop the rider using data driven techniques. Ric was always available to chat things through and became a good ‘virtual’ friend as well as a coaching relationship. He understood the needs of a middle aged racer and through his techniques helped me achieve a few successes on a National Level in time trialling that I did not honestly think I could achieve. Whilst not being coached currently – should I decide to have a coach again I’d be in touch with Ric.

I’ve worked with Ric for three years and his coaching has been instrumental in transforming my performances across several cycling disciplines including crits, XC, CX and my main focus of time trialling.
The structure and guidance Ric gives me help me exceed my personal targets and achieve times and results I’d never have thought possible, highlights being a 53 minute 25 and top 15 in the Midlands TT Rankings in 2018.
Ric offers a very collaborative approach and was able to quickly adjust my plan to accommodate changes in available training time due to business travel. I have a young family and a busy job so getting the most out of the small amount of weekly time available for training was a real benefit of working with a coach.
