You might have seen CRC Intense rider Matt Simmonds' post a while back advertising his coaching sessions. Well it seems more pros are getting in on the act, which can only be a good thing. We featured Tom in dirt recently, he's a good lad and when he's in the zone he shifts like sh*t off a shovel. Check it out...

Tom Dowie is collaborating with Tony Doyle of UK Bike Skills to offer Women’s training days and junior skills days over the next couple of months. Tom and Tony both run their own coaching companies but have decided to work together on these set of courses to provide the highest level of coaching around.

Tom excels in dirt jumping and 4X racing and Tony in northshore, XC and time trialing. This means they can both offer an exceptionally high level of coaching in all disciplines.
