''I have been coached by LPC for the past season and I can honestly say that I had the best race season of my life.

Under Phill's guidance and knowledge of the European racing scene I progressed from being present in international level races to regularly racing for the win.

The training is well structured and well explained giving me full confidence that I was doing the right thing. Phill also made himself available any time I needed to talk things through or adjust the training set.

I highly recommend LPC to anyone looking to make the next step in their cycling.''

Coaching has helped me achieve this, to not only race in Europe, but to race in some of the biggest U23 races in the world''

''I’ve been coached by Phill for nearly 2 years now, and throughout this time I feel that I have massively progressed as a road and cyclocross rider.

Phill has got me to a level where I can confidently compete at a National and International level knowing that I’ve done all I can to be at my best for the big race days.


Being a student means that being flexible is very important, Phill accommodates for this extremely well within my training plan, always making himself available to guide me through any training difficulties I can come across.''

“I’ve been working with Phill for a couple of years now and I can’t speak highly enough of what he has done for me. When looking for a coach it seemed so many just offer a ‘one size fits all’ training programme, which doesn’t work for someone like me with a full-time job with a lot of domestic and international travel. The flexibility and understanding Phill shows means I can still maximise my potential and I never thought I’d finish 14th in a National Champs just over two years after starting out in the sport!”

''Ifan’s been my coach for just over 12 months now. Over this time, I’ve made huge leaps in performance, both in power numbers and in the races that we’ve been able to target in the last year. A significant contributor to these improvements has been training consistency and specificity.


Being able to log into Cycling Analytics, view my training and just get it done is invaluable. As someone without a sport science background, I take great confidence in ‘trusting the process’ and Ifan’s specialist knowledge of physiology. When I read my training for the week, I know that it’s been crafted to suit me.


Of course, performance on the bike is important, but it’s not everything – something reflected in Ifan’s coaching style. There is a significant focus on enjoyment instead of just mindless miles or endless intervals.


Ifan has helped me find my passion for racing bikes, having switched from triathlon in early 2019. I’m a firm believer that an athlete who enjoys riding their bike will be more consistent, committed and ultimately enjoy greater success.''

''I have been coached by Phill for 18 months now and have seen masses of improvements on and off the bike whether that has been in the gym, running or on the bike its self. He is always there if you need as well if that’s a question about training or just a chat about future plans.

He has helped me achieve my goals this season on the road and on the cyclocross bike so he can definitely cover multiple disciplines and understand the different needs for these.

I couldn’t be happier with where Phill has got me to in the last 18 months and I am looking forward to what we can do in the future!''

''Phill’s coached me for 4 years now and it’s been great to see the improvements I’ve made each year in both cyclocross and road racing. I’ve always enjoyed the variety in training sessions, especially the LPC weekends, where we get together a strong group for a quality weekend of training.

Phill’s always great at responding to any questions or adjusting my training plan at short notice if needed.''

''I’ve been coached by Phill at LPC for 18 months now and have seen great improvements in my ability and fitness on the bike. Phill’s knowledge of coaching and physiology and the extensive planning that goes into each training block is invaluable to my progression.

 All sessions are well explained and the reason for doing the session is included, which is motivating for me because it explains to me why I’m doing the session and pushes me harder. The feedback on each session is always quick, insightful and keeps motivation high ready for the next session.

If the session didn’t go as planned, we’ll have a quick chat and can immediately get back on track with clear steps on how to get there.

If I ever have any issues or questions about training, Phill always responds very quickly and provides helpful advice.  

The training weekends organised by LPC are also an awesome opportunity to develop race specific skills and tactics. As well as being really good fun you can try different tactics without pressure which really helps when it comes to racing.

Overall, I couldn’t be happier with the service provided by Phill and LPC and would recommend it to any rider looking to advance their ability as a cyclist.''
