Breaking Down the Downhill Team Moves: Insights from Alan Milway

January 29, 2024

Today I’m joined by coach and newly appointed Norco Team Manager, Alan Milway. With years of experience coaching riders both in the gym and trackside at the World Cups, Alan boasts an unparalleled understanding of riders and their craft. We sat down last week to delve into the exciting roster changes for the 2024 downhill season, and trust me, there’s plenty to discuss! Alan generously shares his insights on each move, along with some discussion of when and how to advise riders, adding variability to your bike time and much more. So, it’s time to sit back, hit play and listen to this episode with Alan Milway.
