The satisfaction, pride and excitement I get from seeing others succeed with their own riding successes following on from coaching and leading is the reason I am a part of the MTB professional industry.
I am a full time mountain biker and skier. I work as a senior instructor at Glenmore Lodge National Outdoor Training Centre, in the Mountain Bike department. As a British Cycling tutor on the leadership training and assessment courses, a Velotech tutor on the mechanics courses, as a level 3 leader and level 2 coach on all the courses that are provided. From ‘Trail Plus’ to our ‘discover mountain biking’ along with the bike packing essentials and advanced courses.
For me personally, mountain biking has so many aspects to the sport and my passions vary within, I love a session of steep and rooty then if its wet and slidy even better (I have lived in Fort William for 10 years), equally I also thrive on big adventure in the mountains.
