Phil Kilpatrick, Head Coach, has worked at Derby Arena since it opened in 2015. He, along with the track coaching team, have seen the programme develop into the UK’s most accessible, engaging and results achieving track. With his experience of racing track at a national level, British Masters Champion 2018 Phil has worked to offer a programme based around the rider’s needs. Sessions range from general endurance to sprint specific guidance, and have classes programmed for riders of all experiences, from novice to advanced levels.
