Fred Wagenvoorde has joined the MTD team as a Cycling Coach
Find out more about him other than the guy who shows up to the occasional swim with his snorkel... (by the way, he LOVES being called Freddie..)
I was an avid cross-country runner and waterpolo player back in high school. Following that I joined in Lifesaving where I learnt how to swim properly, navigating the surf and currents.
With all the various sports and adding in an Argus Cycle Tour every year, I was recommended to join a triathlon club where I met Claire (who has been my coach ever since) and started racing triathlons in 2012.
After a few years things have changed, priorities, life...it happens. I've slowly been building up my experience in different fields of sport and business which has lead me into wanting to give more than I received from the sport, and coaching would be the next step in giving back.
I'm a qualified UCI level 1 Coach and Bike Fitter (I started my bike fitting through Kent) and currently going on to finish my degree in Financial Management, whilst also working for Gareth Price at his accounting firm, Cloudworxsa.
I'm excited to join the MTD coaching team and look forward to helping others achieve their goals.
