Comments:  What a fantastic week!!!! This was the first time Caroline and I had joined a training camp, so we were uncertain what to expect. What we got was a great week’s cycling led by Iuri and Fiona with a group of cyclists who were absolutely great both in their friendship but also support. Hotel accommodation was ideal for cyclists with good food, large rooms, comfy beds and we were able to keep bikes in the room which takes the worry out of storing them out of sight. Rides were challenging, interesting and varied supported by Iuri and Fiona who were happy to share their considerable experience and professionalism.

Comments:  Can't express how grateful me and all my teammates are to Iuri for such a great week. Everything was arranged for us right down to the airport transfers making everything super relaxed. I personally have a new max power and feel so much more comfortable descending. Check out the sprint lead out train if you need further proof of Iuri's expertise

Comments:  The team training camp that Velo Performance ran for us was just brilliant. Everything had been organised for us. All we had to do was turn up and ride our bikes with Iuri to guide us along the way. Scenic routes, quiet roads. Iuri went out of his way to make sure that everything was spot on for us, and it was. Thank you!

Comments:  I started being coached by VP mid way through my season last year, and the improvement I saw was impressive, I won several races in the latter half of the year and it was all down to Iuri. He is great at communication, and very accommodating to any issue that might occur.
