We caught up with coached rider Jo Buckland, @buckland8117, as she finished off a short but successful season.
Jo came over at the middle of the 2019 season and quickly started showing what she had. A jump from regular races hitting around the 170w, Jo has jumped up to a very impressive 210w but a jump in power is only half the story. Jo's power control, efficiency, rate of recovery have all massively improved and Jo has consistently proved her strength and there’s still more to come in 2021.

As the season draws to a close and is mainly uphill, I've finished my last race and am now ready to chill and drink more gin and reflect on an unusual race season.
It was a an early cold start way back in February, but I was keen to try out my race legs, Billy had been working me hard throughout the winter months.

This has been my first full season being coached by Billy and I couldn’t have done it without his hard work and support. Not quite the season we’d planned but fairly successful and mostly enjoyable.
Can’t wait to race next year for FTP and Billy, hopefully with held starts and lots of weak tea and cake #strongwoman #cycling #instacycling #timetrialthursday #faster #stronger #fulfilthepotentialracing #proudcoach @fulfilthepotentialracing
