Hamish started racing bikes in 1984, competing at a National level in U17, U19 and Elite. After a modest career featuring six A grade victories, his career was curtailed by injury. At this stage he was quickly snapped up by cyclists as a Coach in 1991. Before long he was producing National Champions and being awarded National Coaching roles.
While taking on the challenges of coaching, he completed Coaching Qualifications here and in Australia. In 1995 Hamish completed a BA in Psychology, and in 2015 was awarded a Masters Degree for research into the use of Power Meters to model the long term fitness of Elite Road Cyclists. Since 1991 he has coached riders to 71 National Titles, 17 UCI World Level Medals, two Olympians and has twice won Cycling NZ Coach of the Year for Road and Track Coaching
As a coach Hamish works with Road, Track, Cross Country, Enduro and Downhill Cyclists. He blends a combination of sport science based practice with his many years of coaching experience to develop a comprehensive programme for cyclists. He starts with defining purpose, then visualising performance, preparing relentlessly before providing support to compete with distinction. Talk to Hamish today about why everyone who works with him makes outstanding performance gains.
