2015 season review by Coach John Cheetham

2015 was a great year for the very varied range of PCC endurance riders, EVERYONE reached and surpassed their process goals and most riders barring injury placed very high and above expectations in their performance goals. There was a TON of hard work shown in the power files and nutrition, combined we averaged 19,944 kjs a WEEK for 10 athletes for a total year of 1,037,088 kilojoules! Great job! Beverly …Read More

2015 season review by Coach Helen Scott

Coach Helen Scott writes about her riders Cam Thomson: As a last year youth we stepped up his training and included strength and conditioning into his program. I believe that this has been a major factor towards his personal best times in every event this season. His technique and form in the gym is excellent, and his sensible approach to his progression has meant we’ve got the best out of …Read More

2015 Season review by Coach Lee Povey

    It has been another stellar year for our PCC athletes, I feel so lucky to work with such a talented and committed bunch! Everyone supports their teammates and training partners and shares in the groups highs and lows. It really is like one big family. With so many great results it wouldn’t be fair to single any one rider out, so please find their roll call of top …Read More

Ryan Owens testimonial

When I first approached Lee in late 2012 I think it’s fair to say I wasn’t in the best way. 11 months with barely any training due to a painful tendonitis injury is not the best starting point for training to become a world class track sprinter but that’s the situation I found myself in. After a couple of phone calls with Lee I was sold that he was the …Read More

World Masters Track Championships, Manchester 2015 report

Reid Schwartz who I was helping out with race day coaching and his team mates James …Read More

Race Reporting: 2015 Master’s NCNCA Districts and US Master’s Nationals

Mark Rodamaker Knowing it was going to be a scorcher of a week in terms of weather, I flew in to Rock Hill, SC the day before racing started. My week of racing kicked off with the 500m TT, Points Race and Scratch Race, all of which I performed well in, considering the temperatures and my limited endurance training. The race I was most looking forward to and have spent …Read More

I sought a cycling coach but instead joined a family

This all dated back 2.5 years ago. I attended one of Lee’s Monday night training sessions. At the point, I had been riding track for 3 months, after a two-decade hiatus from collegiate road racing. Making a comeback is rarely easy. I had given myself 5 years to be competitive at a national championship, which I narrowly missed in college as a road rider thanks to my non-climber build. Lee …Read More

Mark Anderson 2015 season review

After a few years of reasonable success on the road (criteriums) and mass-start track events, I started with Lee and PCC in the fall of 2014 with the intent of a full focus on track sprinting and a target of success at Masters Nationals.  In hindsight, I had no idea what I was getting into and had to unlearn a number of things to transition into being a “real sprinter”.  …Read More
