ABOUT ME

Ciaran

O'Grady

I currently work with Israel Start-Up Nation as a Performance Coach and Sports Scientist, and in addition to this I coach many amateur athletes through Cadence Performance in London.

 

I hold a Master’s degree in Sports Science from the University of Kent, where I investigated endurance cycling performance and training response. I am currently working towards a PhD specializing in the individualisation of training prescription​s. I apply my scientific knowledge to help riders improve their performance​, which is really great! I hold a Level 2 award from British Cycling in Cycling Coaching.

 

Regarding my own cycling, I come from a Road Racing background, competing in regional, national and overseas competitions. I've also competed nationally in MTB and Cyclocross events.

 

coaching services

In addition to my work for the World Tour professional cycling team Israel Start-Up Nation I also offer private coaching for cyclists. There are two avenues available for athletes;

 

Generally, my coaching services are available through the South-London based cycling performance centre Cadence Performance on a remote coaching basis.

For athletes looking for professional-level coaching support I offer bespoke coaching programs that are available on discussion.
