Meet Dan Hunt
Dan Hunt is an outstanding sports coach. He was Performance Director of British Cycling and TEAM SKY and Senior National Endurance Coach directly coaching the Great Britain Men's track endurance team and overseeing the coaching delivery and performance of the Women's team. He is now Performance Director at The Premier League. Throughout his 5 year coaching career he has coached athletes, in individual and team events to Gold medals at Commonwealth Games, European Championships, Track World Cups, World Championships and London 2012.
"One of the key players behind the scenes at the now prominent sport of indoor track cycling"
Having completed an MSc in Exercise Science Dan Hunt worked at the University of Bath as an assistant sports scientist. Within two years he was appointed senior physiologist at a National Institute of Sport. In 2005 he was contacted by the Great Britain Cycling Team to transform the then failing Women's Endurance Team. With 4 Olympic Medals in just two and a half years he had turned them into a winning team. Since Beijing 2008, Dan has sustained the success of the women's programme which culminated in 2009 where the team medalled in every World Championship event including events which Great Britain hasn't been competitive in for over 20 years and successfully defended the World Team Pursuit Title.
His presentations draw parallels between the mind-set, values and philosophies, determination and leadership necessary to win in elite sport or business. Relishing his role with SKY Team, Dan believes he will succeed in the two distinct aims using enthusiasm, leadership, vision, and shared British Cycling values and philosophies. The first has already been achieved - winning the Tour de France with British rider Bradley Wiggins in 2012 and believes he will achieve the second - to become the best sports team in the world.
Full of inspiration and examples of a relentless quest for quality and refusal to accept second-best, Dan Hunt is no stranger to telling it how it is. A relaxed and highly effective communicator, he expertly illustrates his winning message in a clear and concise style.
