We reached out to Loughborough University based on their work with other major sporting organisations, and the team provided us with clear, simple advice on what would be best for our riders. After testing at the beginning of the off-season period, both riders reported that the facilities and support which Loughborough provided was world-class.

We keep up to date with the latest research and carry out our own applied research projects, supported by undergraduate and postgraduate students within the School of Sport Exercise and Health Sciences.  

We have ever-strengthening links with the School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences, which allows us to engage with many of Loughborough’s sector-leading academics and apply their findings to our delivery across a variety of sports.  Some of our staff are also directly involved in research through carrying out applied PhDs or through integrated roles across departments. This gives athletes and coaches alike the confidence that everything we do is grounded in science, leaving no stone unturned.
