Endurance Squad

Road, Track, Time-Trial, Cyclo-Cross

Catering for mens, womens and para cycling across endurance cycling disciplines. The squad is only open to current students at Loughborough University, or eligible courses at Loughborough College.

The endurance squad provides development opportunities for U23 and senior riders with the ambition and potential to become successful on the national and international stage across endurance cycling disciplines. In line with this ambition, we provide athletes with a comprehensive coaching and performance support team, and assist in seeking opportunities to help riders into BC Elite Development Teams, UCI teams, and NGB programmes. 

 Riders work with a performance cycling coach and S&C coach within the endurance group to deliver effective training programmes as appropriate to their discipline(s) and individual needs of each athlete including:

  • Periodised annual training plan
  • Individualised training prescription through our Intervals.icu platform
  • Integrated strength and conditioning sessions
  • Group training rides
  • Road based circuit training (Campus based, and Leicester Cycle Circuit)
  • Track based training (Derby velodrome, Newcastle-under-Lyme outdoor track)
  • Sport Nutrition
  • Physiology Testing 
  • Sport Psychology
  • Physiotherapy
  • Bikefit and aerodynamics
  • Performance Lifestyle

Opportunites to represent the university at  BUCS competitions across hill climb, track, time trials and the road race.
