About the coach

Adam Hardy B.Sc. (Hons), MA, PGCE, BCL2, UKCC, BASES, IfL

I established Sportslab in 2007 while working within academia. I had a small but select group of riders working towards improving their time trial and road race performances. In 2009 I took the business a step further, going full time and building my own facility. Over the intervening period I have coached riders to National championship victories and professional contracts, while others have gone on to represent their country and competed in world championships. I find helping riders to achieve their full potential just as rewarding as if I had made the achievements myself. I am passionate about the sport and have represented Great Britain  and held national records


I previously taught exercise physiology and biomechanics on behalf of the University of Hull and at York St John University. I am a qualified teacher, coach and member of the British Association of Sports & Exercise Scientists. I have extensive experience evaluating exercise testing and providing personal training to individuals and aspiring coaches.


I have widespread knowledge of the sport with over twenty five years’ experience as a cyclist competing in Time Trials, Road Races, Sportives and Duathlon. I have represented Great Britain at the UCI World Championships (Time Trial), held National Records and taken part in events around the world. I also organise cycle events and sportives.

I have competed as a GB age group Duathlete and completed Le Marmotte sportive in the French Alps, meeting the gold standard.

Once upon a time I even held three world records on a tandem!
