Our team development pathway
Foundation Technology Development Team
Making it to A Grade requires hard training, talent and plenty of motivation. Having a team environment to learn team tactics, bike skills and having team mates makes the development process much more enjoyable.
Our pathway involves a B and C grade Foundation Technology team which competes in VRS and local races, aimed at creating a supportive learning environment. The B and C grade women are mentored by the A grade women’s Pitcher Partners team, whilst the male development riders are mentored by Stefan Immerger.
Kelly Cycle Coaching prides itself on being able to develop riders from D grade or entry level and turn them into National Champions and National level riders. With our process-based coaching philosophy, we have had proven success with developing many riders over the years.
This includes riders such as:
- Angus Lyons
- Maccie Carter
- Paddy Burt
- Drew Morey
- Justine Barrow
- Ben Andrews
- Liam and Nick White
Our major sponsors, Drapac and Pitcher Partners, believe in the way we develop our riders. We use a well-rounded approach where work/study/family commitments are important and the training program is designed around these lifestyle commitments.
We find this approach is a proven formula as it allows an athlete to retain a healthy balance between cycling and other life commitments. This method of coaching is KCC’s philosophy of retaining a balance between life and sport.
KCC helps you develop in all facets of your cycling so you arrive at a National level without neglecting areas of your development. Our coaching approach ensures we assess and develop your:
- bike position and technique
- core stability/strength & flexibility
- nutrition & diet
