About 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 of British Ski and Snowboard. Throughout his 5 year coaching career he has coached athletes (both male and female), in individual and team events to Gold medals at Commonwealth Games, European Championships, Track World Cups, World Championships and London 2012.

Dan completed an MSc in Exercise Science and started to work at the University of Bath as an assistant sports scientist. Within two years he was appointed senior physiologist at a National Institute of Sport.

He was contacted by the Great Britain Cycling Team in 2005 to transform the then failing Women’s Endurance Team. He led the transformation of a failing programme into one that produced 4 Olympic Medals in just two and a half years. 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.
