About Dan (Head Coach)

My Background

image4

Always interested in both the science and art of performance from a young age, I started coaching when I was 16, initially in Athletics and then later moving my focus to Cycling. After studying for a degree in Sport and Exercise Science I spent 8 years working in the Coaching Education and Development department at British Cycling before setting up Mountain Goat Performance CycleCoaching full time in 2014.


I provide tailor-made performance coaching with a philosophy of focussing on each individual’s needs and helping all riders to develop using the training methods most appropriate to them. There is no-one-size fits all, don't try to fit a square peg in to a round hole and don't be a sheep!

Who I Work With

I have worked with a huge variety of cyclists from novice all the way up international level and everyone in between. I’m currently working with people aged 14 to 60 years, across a wide variety of cycling disciplines and ability levels.


I work hard to continually develop my knowledge and coaching skills and love the variety of different challenges that my riders present me with. I've been involved in coaching for 2 decades but still continue to keep learning every day!
