ALS cycling are pleased to announce - Guest lead rider: Billy Webb, at 39 he has been completing competitively at high level sport for over 20 years and has a wealth of experience to pass on. Starting out as a cross country runner he represented the Army for the combined services and had a very successful running career taking part in many events.
Not one to sit back Billy then took up Nordic skiing and whist completing at a National level he was a member of a team that won over 20 National titles over an 8 year period. What followed was a transitional move into triathlon seeing his life and his sporting achievements going from strength to strength.
Over a 5 year period he has competed in 4 full Ironman events and over 10 half Ironman events. In 2016 he competed at the 70.3 world Ironman championships in Australia finishing with a rather impressive 152 ranking in the world, his achievements have taken dedication, commitment and serious personal sacrifice.
Over recent years he has been training in the French Alps and has a great understanding of his own ability. One of Billys great skills when training with others is that he can quickly dial into their strengths and adapt a training package to fit all that ride with him. He writes his own training plans and has an extensive cycling knowledge. Both on and off the saddle Billy is great company, his manner is charming and he is great fun to be with.
When needed his tips and guidance will help you get the most out of your cycling experience, be that getting the most out of pedal power on hill climbing, powering down descents, cornering correctly or just getting the most out of the rides. One of his top tips will teach you how to maximise physical effort whist cycling within groups.
Now in his late 30’s he is no where happier than training others and leading rides. He takes time to ensure he caters for the whole group, he admits “at times this can be challenging” however he has an infectious personality that encourages people to get the most out of their ability it wins every time.
To summarise, he has a mass of experience with plenty of mileage in his legs. His endurance and strength remains strong and he loves nothing more than passing on his skills to others.
Whether your group want to go hard, fast, slow or just a steady pace either way once you get to the end of the day, however you want to arrive Billy will ensure you will have had a great ride out. Never one to rest, once showered, recovered and relaxing you will find Billy preparing his bike ready for the next adventure.
