Regional Coaching Forum

Calling all Coaches.


The first First Regional Coaching Forum will be held at the Hetton Centre Function Room (DH5 9NE) on Thursday 16th October from 7-9 pm.

The focus of the meeting will be to discuss ways for coaches within the North East to progress and share coaching knowledge. There will also be an opportunity to find out about recent changes to the The British Cycling Regional Performance Pathway and the opportunities to get involved in coaching outside of your club sessions, including Club Cluster of Trainings, Regional Schools of Racing, and the new Olympic Development Apprentice scheme.

Even if you don’t want to be involved in anything other than club sessions, the Forum will give clubs and coaches an opportunity to talk about coaching methods and ultimately help riders to improve.

The Forum will be led by Ben Greenwood, the Regional Performance Pathway Coach; also present will be Dan Small, Regional Development Manager for the North East.

MTB Inter-Regional Championships

The weekend of the 19th-21st September saw the running of the 2014 Inter-Regional MTB Championship with 14 teams representing the 10 English Regions, Scotland (North and South), Ulster and Wales compete.

In the overall team competition, history was made as a non-Scottish Team - the East Midlands - won the competition for the first time.  The silver medals went down to the wire with Scotland South just overtaking North East in the final event to snatch second place.  

The championship comprised a skills competition, a handicap race, an eliminator, a mixed boys and girls relay and a XC race - testing the range of MTB  and teamworking skills of the riders. 

The North East riders third position is a fantastic result, reflecting the strength of our current crop of both boys and girls in this discipline.
