OUR EXPERT COACHES

JESSE COYLE

QUALIFICATIONS
  • Bachelor of Exercise and Sports Science

  • Cycling Australia Level 1 Road & Track Coach

SPORTING BACKGROUND

Rowing until 2014, Road cycling 2015- now. Previously a UCI Continental registered rider racing for Mobius Bridgelane, now with Team Nero Bianchi.

INTERESTS OUTSIDE ROAD RIDING

I enjoy the extremely specific demands of a Road TT event. Helping someone work through each minor detail of a TT and to be able to plan for such a specific event is challenging but enjoyable.

FAVOURITE TRAINING SESSION TO PRESCRIBE

Intervals of descending duration. Having the interval length decrease and letting riders push themselves to the limit often see’s them hit intensities they didn’t think were possible before.

 

DANIEL VAN DER LAAN

QUALIFICATIONS
  • Bachelor Applied Science (Physio) Class 1 Honours, APAM

  • Cycling Australia Level 2 Road & Track Coach

SPORTING BACKGROUND

AFL as a junior. Road & Track cycling since 2012.

INTERESTS OUTSIDE ROAD RIDING

I love the track. I think it helps to fast track a lot of riders skills especially riding in a bunch and finishing a race. I love helping people learn the nuances of track cycling.

FAVOURITE TRAINING SESSION TO PRESCRIBE

My favourite session changes almost weekly. One that has stuck as a favourite for a while is a 1 hour MIET (Moderate intensity Endurance Training Session) which is essentially an hour at 90% of threshold.

 

DANNY ROBERT-CLARKE

QUALIFICATIONS
  • Bachelor of Applied Science (Exercise Physiology) Class 1 Honours

  • Cycling Australia Level 1 Road & Track Coach

SPORTING BACKGROUND

I’ve been mountain biking for most of my life, and picked up training and racing on the road in 2013, including a couple of seasons in the NRS. I’ve also got a background in climbing, hiking and skiing.

INTERESTS OUTSIDE ROAD RIDING

I’ll always be a mountain biker at heart, so helping mountain bikers achieve their goals is especially rewarding.

FAVOURITE TRAINING SESSION TO PRESCRIBE

I wouldn’t say I have a specific favourite as what I’d prescribe varies greatly depending on the athlete. However, lately one I’ve found really useful is a twist on the classic 2x20, including an over/under component that helps replicate the on/off style of racing and can push a riders threshold up.
