Ever fancied becoming a pro cyclist? Many guys will have fantasised about the glamour of travel, podium girls, and having a soigneur at their beck and call.
Well now's your chance - if you're a keen amateur, a new reality TV show is looking to shortlist 12 lucky cyclists for a programme that will train you to become a pro cyclist. From there, just two will be selected to experience the intense training, nutrition and race-winning tactics required of pros, as they battle for the title of the BIKE Channel’s first ever UK winner of The Coach.
The final challenge will feature the pair going head to head in a prestigious sportive. Contenders and viewers will have a unique insight into the many highs and lows of professional training, from former professionals, Olympic medallist Rob Hayles and ex team Dimension Data manager, Brian Smith.
