Cannondale Factory Racing Professional Mountain Bike Team


Cannondale Factory Racing is a mountain bike team that competes in international World Cups, World Championships and international elite races such as Cape Epic.


The client and their challenge

We work closely with the team manager Phil to tackle the challenges faced by a team that is constantly on the road and racing regularly. They achieved the position of best overall team last season, so the challenge is to retain this, whilst striving for individual podium positions.

The project

We work with the team’s performance manager to help support his and the team’s psychological development. This support ranges from one-to-one work with the riders to group workshops with the whole team, helping them to understand themselves and each other to improve performance.

Creating the right environment for riders to thrive is a priority for the performance manager so we discuss ways to develop this.

The outcome/benefits

The team had their best ever season in 2018, with team and individual podiums at every World Cup.

Creating the right environment for riders to thrive  is a priority for the performance manager, and the team has seen improvements in performance and wellbeing since taking this approach.
