A seasoned racer, Ed has travelled the world racing and riding bikes on all terrain. A love of two wheels began early for Ed, competing in the British and European motorbike trials series from a young age until university. Fast-forward a few years and for the past three years he has competed against the world’s best in the Enduro World Series and prestigious events like Megavalanche.
Now focusing on racing the British Enduro series and select international races Ed is passionate about passing on his knowledge of the sport to everyone who shares his passion for getting out on their bikes. An accredited British Cycling MTB coach, Ed also has a Degree in Sports Science and a Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology. This depth of knowledge has helped him to adjust his coaching style to fit all levels of learners, be it total beginners to the sport or seasoned racers who are looking to gain that extra bit of speed.
Ed brings his friendly and energetic style to all his sessions and his clear stoke for all things mountain biking and the outdoors in general is contagious. His coaching sessions are built around an open and friendly environment and he prides himself on being able to adapt his coaching style to the needs of the rider.
An MBLA Tutor Ed brings the same energy, knowledge and enthusiasm to his leadership courses as his coaching days. This combined with mountaineering experience gained in some of the more extreme regions of the world including the Himalaya, New Zealand and Canadian Rockies sets Ed up perfectly to deliver interesting and engaging courses.
