Sean Dunlea is an under-23 cyclocross rider and has been coached by Mark for the last five years. Sean says,
“Since working with Mark before my breakthrough season in 2013/2014, I’ve seen not only my performance increase hugely, but also my professionalism and motivation. Through goal setting and regular contact, we kept on a plan that took me to winning the National Cyclocross Series – something that was a dream of mine for so long! I’ve taken a step up in my career into the U23 category, and Mark’s training plans and attitude towards the sport made the transition so smooth and trouble-free. I recommend Mark to anybody looking to improve every aspect of their cycling performance.”
Sean was interviewed a couple of years ago by Youth Cycle Sport and said,
“My coach Mark Walker specialises in cyclocross and so he really helps me with every aspect of living the life of a ‘cross rider, physically and psychologically.”
It has been a real pleasure coaching Sean and watching him flourish in his cyclocross career. The biggest breakthrough was when he won his first National Trophy race in 2013.
