ABOUT YOUR COACH
John Stockwell has been riding bikes of all types since he was 5 years old. After leaving school at 16, he became a BMX Factory Rider and National Champion, travelling around Europe competing in National, European and World Championships.
He 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!
Working for British Cycling for 4 years as a Coach, and now Tutor the level 3 MTB and BMX Award. He has raced many other disciplines including XC Mountain Biking, Cyclo-Cross, Road Racing and Cycle Speedway. It has been while entering these events that he has noticed his bike handling skills have helped me vastly. In some races his skills have gained him 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 offroad bike handling.
He is now a full time freelance Mountain Bike Coach. With his expertise he believes he can teach you all you need to know to advance your riding.
