Race Mechanic Simon Wainwright

Bonjour! I ‘m Simon and I may be servicing your bike today. After 10 years seeing the world with the Army I opted for a change of life and took my love of cycling to the next level. I have gained my VRQ Level 3 in Cycle Maintenance and Mechanics, and established myself as a mobile cycle technician around the West London area.


My current rides are either my FELT Compulsion II for the rough stuff (Mint Sauce Edition for those in the know ;) ) or my sturdy CAAD 8 for the smoother surfaces. The equation of N-1 certainly rings true for me!


When I’m not adjusting TT bars, fine tuning gear shifts or tending to the ginger sideburns I am also a football referee. I have officiated on FA Cup and Women’s Premier League games and can also be found encouraging the next generation at Premier League Youth Academies. In winter when the pitches are too wet, I take advantage of a weekend off and head to the slopes.


I take pride in helping other people achieve their goals, and as a mechanic with Race Force I see that this is an excellent opportunity to do just that. I’m looking forward to seeing you somewhere in Europe!
