Jake Phelps

Coach & Data Analyst

I’m Jake Phelps and am an U23 Elite Mountain Bike Cross Country rider and recently qualified British Cycling Coach, where I coach for Rowe & King and undertake data analysis.

I have always ridden a bike but when I was 11 I took
part in a Track Attack course at Maindy Cycle Track
run by Welsh Cycling and caught the two-wheeled bug!
From there I went along to Newport Velo and did a
track course and joined the infamous Maindy Flyers
Youth Cycling Club.

The training and racing with Maindy was
great fun and we did a good mixture of track, road,
cyclo cross and mtb riding and racing.

 

I have been training and racing full time since 2014, where this
year I have a semi pro contract with the
TORQ Performance MTB Team.

I spend 15-20 hours training a week (road, track,
off-road and skills) all geared towards my primary focus
on qualifying and representing Wales in the 2018
Commonwealth Games, in Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.
