Connie Hudson recaps 2016

In October 2015 I was fortunate to be accepted as a rider to race for RP VISION Women’s racing team who use Epic Coaching to coach some of the riders.

Charlie Meredith’s Junior Tour of Ireland win

A marker for the future Success at Junior level in Cycling is pivotal to gaining opportunities at U-23 level and subsequently the chances for those who dream of Professional careers. So when EPiC Coached Charlie Meredith won the overall GC and Queen stage of the Junior Tour of Ireland it was a prime target which had been carefully planned by the entire team at EPiC and executed perfectly by Charlie himself. Whilst EPiC coach Kenny Wilson, who is based in Ireland himself is Charlie’s coach the entire team have had a hand in helping him get the best out of his training, tactical development and overall conditioning. At EPiC we are proud to match every ounce of the true desire this rider has to get as far as he can in cycling, he’s truly an impassioned young man.

Throughout the winter we pushed this forward in carefully selected endurance and Peak Power blocks to aid in developing a growing young man. We believe the platform to make a strong rider in early spring comes from being able to push the pedals hard and fast. To some, pushing this...

These riders all achieved something extraordinary in 2015.

Don’t be ordinary in 2016 Come and talk to Epic Coaching!   So what did these riders achieve?   Etienne Georgi – Giant CC became the first 1st year junior to win the National Junior series since 1982. In a list that includes Bradley Wiggins, Luke Rowe, Peter Kennaugh , Geraint Thomas, and Simon Yates we don’t think that this is a small achievement. The fact that makes it more remarkable is that at the end of the previous season Etienne was told that he would not be progressing on to the GB Junior academy from the U 16...
