    informed by data

  • Your training is informed by your data. 

  • A little bit of quality data is better than lots of bad data.

  • Data doesn't just mean numbers. What's the story behind the statistics? 

  • Verbal feedback and context is vital to making sense of your training.


     adapted to

     the athlete

  • Your plan is unique to you. 

  • Training is built to suit your life and can be adapted to get the most out of your time.

  • Illness, injury, and missed sessions are a normal part of life.

  • When things don't go to plan, we adapt.



  • drivetrain coaches the whole person, not just the cyclist. 

  • Your life story matters.

    • Cross-training 

    • Sleep

    • Nutrition

     plan for     performance

  • Training is periodised, polarised, and backed by science.

  • Every training session has a clear purpose; every training block has a clear goal.

The most useful education for being a professional sports person, pretty much any sport, is an outdoor childhood, whether you want to be a footballer, an ice hockey player or a cyclist.
