Coach Lee Povey has been riding bikes since he was 3 and started racing at 13. He first started coaching local riders when he was 20 and was surprised at the difference he could make with a little knowledge and some common sense. Before following his passion and becoming a full time coach, Lee ran a successful property company. This equipped him with valuable experience in communication and motivation skills. He learnt how to quickly adapt to all sorts of people from many different walks of life.
Having won various International, National and regional titles on the track, he has first hand experience of competition at all levels and the pressures involved. This vital experience allows him to appreciate just what the riders he is coaching are going through and gives him the tools to help you when you need it the most. His philosophy is that a great coach has to be completely athlete focused and put their own ego to one side.
He loves his work and is driven by doing the best he can for the riders he coaches. He finds nothing more fulfilling than helping others achieving their aims, however challenging. Like all PCC coaches, Lee continually works on his knowledge, staying up to date on the very latest in training, nutritional, physiological and recovery advances. His credentials include:
- British Cycling Level Two Club Coach
- USAC Olympic Development Coach
- Manchester and Newport accredited Coach
- Associate member of UK Strength and Conditioning Association
- HSE First Aid at Work
- NLP and Sports Psychology practitioner
He has coached a number of World, European and National Champions in all disciplines from road to track endurance and track sprint. He has built a reputation for discovering new talent, and for an honest and mentoring approach.
