Racing Success


Palmares is what the French call a rider’s list of successes. I list my own at the bottom for reference, but the successes of the cyclists in my care have been even more exciting and important to me.

My ambition has always been to list the accomplishments of my cyclists in one place. Not only does this seem like a small reward for a job well done (like having your name on the Dean’s list at university perhaps) but it also shows potential clients that I have had some success with the people I coach. After all, results are why you might hire a coach in the first place. It proved much more difficult than I expected. After a decade of coaching people I find that riders “forget” to tell me about their results (even when excellent) and it is impossible to go looking for all the results on the internet. Lately I have been racing a lot myself (thankfully, since I love bike racing) and coaching a lot of new people with whom I do not get as many results from as riders in the past – in short I do not feel it is useful to maintain the old format of this page with all its many results. Therefore I have decided to reformat the page to list only the really good racing results of my cyclists in the space below.

Please note that to avoid confusion I have decided to quit calling long XC races “enduros” because to most of the rest of the world that term refers to a very different style of racing. I will refer to them as marathons because XCM (Cross Country Marathon) is how the UCI sees this class of racing. They don’t recognise Enduro as a form of racing at all – XCE is that stupid eliminator format racing that might be fun to compete in, but isn’t very relevant to the wider world of XC racing.
