We are experts at working with long distance athletes whether its your first time at this event or you are an experienced athlete.

We can offer you a range of coaching options from a one off plan to follow for the event to a week by week bespoke training program specifically gerared around your goals and lifestyle.  

All our plans are specific to Roth, we are not only an official coaching provider for Challenge but also have raced the event, have knowledge on the area, and coached numerous athletes of all abilities for the race.  We look at matching your training to the demands of the course such as assisting you with bike profile, conditions on the day and how to mentally as well as physically prepare for such a big day.

BIKE TRANSPORTATION 

We offer a bike transfer option from the UK so you don’t have to think about travelling or transporting your bike at all for the whole race journey.  Let us collect it, transport it and deliver it to the race venue, it will be waiting for you on arrival exactly as you handed it over.
Easy travelling! and it means you:

  • Don’t need to hire or buy a bike box
  • Don’t need to disassemble your bike and have to remove seat posts and wheels and make adjustments you don’t want to
  • Don’t have to get your bike box to the airport and then onto and off the plane
  • Don’t have to pay the airlines to transport your bike with the added worry of loss or damage (bikes going missing is fairly common!)
  • Don’t have to after the race worry about packing your bike up and then getting it home again!

For approximately the same cost of transporting your bike on a plane we can collect it fully assembled from your home, deliver it to the accommodation you are staying at at the race venue and then post race will be close by transition to take it off your hands so you can enjoy the post race celebrations and have an easy flight home.  
No hassle of disassembling the bike and lugging it onto a plane with tired legs!  We deliver it back to your home by the following weekend and better still allow for extra wheels to be transported for free and for an additional fee of £10 you can put a small kit bag (5kg) with your bike.  Its all insured as well up to £5000 while in transit.
