davebailey.gifWhat Is It You Do?

I’m a sport scientist with an expertise in exercise physiology.

How Long For?

I’ve worked as a sports scientist for over 10 years.

How Did You Get Into It?

After studying for degrees in exercise physiology in Cardiff then Loughborough I took an opportunity to work with elite athletes.

What Do You Love About What You Do?

I’m passionate about sport and have an inquisitive mind so I guess I’m lucky to do something that combines the two.

What High Profile Clients Have You Worked With?

I was lucky enough to work closely with the British Cycling team during the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. The team won 14 medals including 8 golds. Since then I’ve worked with multiple World Champions and Olympic medallists in cycling, triathlon and extreme sports. I also work with a number of professional cyclists.

In Your Mind How Would You Describe Cyclists?

Generally speaking, they are the most professional and knowledgeable athletes I’ve worked with. Sure, there’s a distribution from good to bad but in my experience the nature of the sport makes for an athlete that wants to push themselves to the limit and at the same time want to understand the best way to reach their potential.

What Is It About Your Service That Makes You Different From The Rest?

Obviously, I have specialist experience gained from working with the best in the world. This means I have a lot of knowledge that would benefit all clients. Also, I’ve learnt how to apply all the scientific knowledge I’ve accrued through my university studies so its most effectively applied to the actual demands of cycling performance.

In What Way Is Your Service Critical To Cycling?

Simple really, objectivity and innovation. The first is key as many coaches base their training theories on intuition gained from years of experience in their chosen sport. A scientific approach helps to provide an honest and unbiased viewpoint to support the coach’s intuition. Science also leads innovation in cycling, which basically means I get to try out and then provide clients with all the cool stuff.
