Rich came to Dave in the winter of 2004. Rich is a busy guy and runs a multi million pound company and so his time is limited. But he throws everything into what he does, whether it's business or his sport and over the winter Rich got stuck into the training to such effect he lost 10 Kgs!! Then he PB'd massively in his first 25 of 2005 with a SEVEN MINUTE improvement to a 55'59". Rich is also a great hill climber and one of THE best pedallers Dave has seen. He looks effortless on the bike and a real "pedaller des charm". He climbs the big hills sitting down and spinning up effortlesly. (At least it always looks that way!)
Rich has now PB'd in his 10 mile to a 20'48", his 25 mile with a 54'00" and his 50 time with a 1.53.12.
He is also no slouch on the track and did a great ride in the World Masters Championship the last time they were held in Manchester. In fact he is off to Australia this year to have a go at the Masters Pursuit there, which is one of his major goals for 2008.
Rich, like all of Dave's athletes who are going, is looking forward to the training Camp in Denia... In Rich's case, not just for the training..He has a Villa there!! GREAT GUY AND GREAT RIDER... THAT'S OUR RICH !
