Good Afternoon Athletes
Welcome Nick Jowsey:

I’m super proud to welcome Nick to OCC as my assistant Coach.  Here is a little more about him:​

Hi OCC team.

I’m thrilled to join the team and I look forward to playing a part in helping you achieve your cycling goals in 2020.

I am an ex professional road racer spending most of my racing years in the US. After picking up a few regional race wins I joined the UCI Continental scene in 2015. I maintain a strong passion for cycling.

I’ve recently moved to Christchurch to study engineering geology at the University of Canterbury. My cycling goals for this year (other than coaching), are to improve my sprint speed and power, smoke Paul in a race, and complete a few multi-day bike-packing adventures.

Thanks for welcoming me to the team – I’ll see you on the road soon.
