Jack Freeman Meudon Pedal Heaven Le Col RT British Cycling South 2019 Regional Road Champion (uncontested 2020 & 2021) British Cycling South 2021 Regional Circuit Gold Elite Cat 2021
Dave has been coaching me for over 5 years, in that time I have had my fair share of ups and downs. In that time he has helped me progress from Youth A racing to Over23. Competing in everything from local crits and TT’s to the junior national road race series and National B’s such as Perfs Pedal. Helping with race tactics, mental preparation and improving every part of my physical fitness. He has also helped me to understand my own body and know what’s best for me. As I have got older he has built up my training load whilst continuing to work around my other commitments such as my job and academic studies. This winter he helped me stay focused and motivated through all the hours that I spend riding solo riding through the rain and snow.
Matthew Houlberg Meudon Pedal Heaven Le Col RT 3rd GC Tour of Sussex 2021 U23 2nd Cat 2021
I've been coached by David Gwilliam from March 2017, since then I have seen amazing improvements to my cycling performance. I’ve been battling at the pointy end of races including the Junior Tour of Wales and the Tour of Sussex; I came second in the Junior National Hill Climb Championships in 2020. With David’s weekly plans I’m always looking forward to the next training session and the performance tests are great to see the progression I have made. David always listens and adapts my plans to my specific needs and my life. Most my training is done via email, but David also organizes local training sessions on a regular basis for local riders and also comes to local races to support. David Gwilliam is more than just a cycle coach he does what ever he can to support me and he is always friendly.
Jacob Schnabel Flanders Color Galloo Junior 2nd Cat 2021
I'm Jacob, a 17 year old cyclist from Fareham. I've been cycling for 6 years now and Dave has really helped me progress as a rider and particularly a racer. Since I have been coached by Trigwill Performance I have become a much stronger and more confident racer in time trials, road races and circuit races. I am now racing for a Belgian Junior team which are famous for raising many professional riders, and so the prospect of my dream of becoming a professional cyclist looks hopeful. My goals for this season are some high profile road races and hopefully I will be able to race abroad as well.
George Cottrell Poole Wheelers Junior 2nd Cat 2021
I've received performance coaching for just over 18months and it has helped me progress as a rider. I started off doing cyclocross, where the coaching helped build the correct training into short periods of time during the busy season of racing Regionally and Nationally. Dave then helped me develop over into the road season for my second year as an u16, which despite being cut short, I was able to achieve a win. He has now helped me build in some endurance over the winter to prepare the transition up to Junior racing, whilst working around my school work as I do my GCSEs. I look forward to continuing my training towards the racing and opportunities that will come.
Freya Richardson AWOL U23 2nd Cat 2021
I started receiving coaching from October 2017, I’ve felt more confident in what I’m doing and that it was ‘all’ for a valid reason. I also managed to fit in more structured training while coping with school/college stresses, keeping the equilibrium. It’s taken a lot of pressure off me trying to figure it out for myself and still ‘do’ the rest of my life. This year I am hoping to progress and become a stronger rider, improving on my weaknesses. I’d also like to have some top 10 results in nationals. As well as also doing my acamemic work (revision & exams) still balancing in some training.
