ABOUT THE COACH
Hi, my name is John Stockwell. I have been riding bikes of all types since I was 5 years old. After leaving school at 16, I became a BMX Factory Rider and National Champion, travelling around Europe competing in National, European and World Championships.
I then raced 4X and got picked up by Team Idenditti and competed in the early BDRA Nationals and then in the MBUK National Pro Series along side such names as Steve Peat, Will Longdens and the Athertons to name just a few!
I worked for British Cycling for 4 years as a Coach, and now Tutor the level 2 MTB and BMX Award. I have raced many other disciplines including XC Mountain Biking, Cyclo-Cross, Road Racing and Cycle Speedway. It has been while entering these events that I have noticed my bike handling skills have helped me vastly. In some races my skills have gained me 20 seconds or more a lap over riders of less ability. Just think what you could gain if you can grasp even the basics of off road bike handling.
I am now a full time freelance Mountain Bike Coach.
With my expertise I believe I can teach you all you need to know to advance your riding.
Well that's enough about me, check out the rest of my Bio, and feel free to contact me if you require anymore info.
