MTB Skills & Fitness Coach

E3Coach are proud to work with World Champions in XC 24hr racing, European 24hr MTB Champions, National Marathon Champions, Nationally ranked XC riders, Downhill racers, Enduro riders, Podium finishers in the Cape Epic, Trans Alp and other multi stage events. E3coach use their years of own racing knowledge across the MTB distances mixed with the science and understanding of what the athlete wants to achieve, to allow us to create personalised and specific training plans.

E3C also offer 1-1 sessions so you can maximise your riding, learning techniques to help build strength and reduce fatigue. Ride out with Head Coach Jon Fearne, with over 20 years endurance racing and 12 years coaching experience, and see how you can improve.

EC3 work with riders of all disciplines in Mountain Biking, from individual’s to race Teams and believe in the crossover of training between XC, Downhill and Enduro.

We are all clear on what we require to be the best at our chosen discipline, sometimes mixing it up and getting benefits from another discipline can bring big gains to you the rider. Enduro riders working on XC style fitness so can be fresh to start each segment, Downhill riders putting in sprints uphill to build leg power specific to riding, with XC riders putting the body armour on and hitting Enduro/Downhill to enhance speed and skill through technical sections. It is all simple but very effective in getting improvements in your chosen sport and it is  still on a bike!

E3C Rider: Steve Day

Three times World 24hr Single Speed Champion, Mountain Mayhem and Torq in Your Sleep overall winner 2015. E3coach have been working with Steve for the 4 years helping him on his way to being multiple World Champion:

"So, now I am the 2016 WEMBO 24-hour Singlespeed World Champion. Something that started over a beer after a 12-hour mountain bike race in August 2014, and has been my focus for the last 18 months. I am proud to bring the title back to the UK and hope to defend it in Italy next year. This wouldn’t have been possible without the support of my wife & son over the last year and a half and I am so grateful for their love and patience. Likewise, all of those people who made the trip to New Zealand possible through crowdfunder and helped keep me focused through the worst winter weather for training knowing that they thought this was possible too. Also, a thanks to Jon Fearne at e3coach and Julian Rider for their belief in me and their words of support – we got there in the end."

TrainingPeaks

E3C work with TrainingPeaks software that allows us as coaches to brake down athletes rides into fine details and allows us to analyse each session. TrainingPeaks gives us your TSS (Training Stress Score) , once your sessions are uploaded it allows us to see when you are in good form or if you are fatigued and so planning your training becomes much easier to make sure you hit hard sessions and races in the right physical form.
