Welcome to James Roberts Coaching
James Roberts Coaching (JRC) was founded in 2016 by James Roberts and Claire Whitworth, both keen cyclists having enjoyed a cumulative total of over 40 years of club riding, training and racing at National and International level. Having a passion for cycling was the main reason for developing JRC as a way of sharing their knowledge, passion and enthusiasm for the sport with others.
Both James and Claire grew up in a club environment, starting to race in school events such as ESCA during the era of Chris Boardman, with Claire going on to be School Girl National Champion in 1987 and subsequently being selected to represent the Junior Girls on the National GB Squad then racing for a French Regional Team in Brittany, France. As well as being a competitive cyclist, James was also a competitive ski racer, representing GB in the Masters in France, Italy and the Czech Republic, achieving a bronze medal in Giant Slalom.
Have both competed at Regional, National and International level, on road and track, James and Claire recently competed at National and World Masters Level on the track, and fully understand the demands and pressures of training to achieve personal goals whilst fitting training and racing into a hectic work / life / family balance.
Behind the scenes, club and family cycling is still at the heart of their passion for the sport, and puts the fun and friendship into what is undoubtedly one of the finest sports in the world to be a part of.
