Performance Coach

Shaun Stephens settled into life at Team Sky seamlessly last season and will be looking to put his expertise to more good use in 2014 as Team Sky aim to break more ground at the head of the peloton.

Stephens was regarded as one of the world's best triathlon coaches when he made the switch to Team Sky at the end of 2012, and had worked as Head Coach to the Australian national team at the London Olympic Games, as well as holding roles at the Australian Institute of Sport and Triathlon Australia.

Since joining Team Sky in his role as Performance Coach, Stephens has worked alongside Head of Performance Tim Kerrison to devise and drive one of the most successful training programmes in the sport, and he is aiming to see further improvements in 2014.

He said: “I thoroughly enjoyed my first season with the team and we worked hard to ensure our training techniques reaped further rewards on the road. We are doing the same this year - at Team Sky we never rest on our laurels and we are constantly looking of ways to hone and improve our training to give our riders the best support we can give them.”
