I have and can consult on T.V & Radio regarding all things Street Luge. I am also currently filming for a new programme which will be updated on the webiste soon, so watch this space. Some of my most recent work has been for the following:
Blue Peter's new presenter Barney
In true Blue peter fashion their new presenter Barney has to undergo a series of challenges. The first one was to race in a street luge race with other more experienced riders. I spent the day training Barney in order to learn the sport and then race. Barney was a 'Lunatic' :) anyway and so he really enjoyed this challenge and picked it up really quickly.
Famous and Fearless
I was asked to train the female contenders for Famous & Fearless which was aired on Channel 4 over the Christmas period in 2010. The female contenders were Kacey Ainsworth (Eastenders), Sarah Jayne Dunn (Hollyoaks), Jenny Frost (Atmoic Kitten) & Dame Kelly Holmes (Olympic gold medalist). I trained all the female contenders to safely navigate a course set out for them in the fastest possible time. They all managed to complete the course with Dame Kelly Holmes winning the event (only by a slight margin)
Rory & Paddy's Great British adventure
I was asked to train both Rory McGrath and Paddy McGuinnes to street luge down the course used for the Eastbourne speed days event, the course was located at Beachy Head. I had to train them to ride safely and as fast as possible. Here is a synopsis from the Five tv website "The men reunite at Beachy Head to compete in the extreme sport of street luge. Former UK champion Will gives them the lowdown on this deadly pursuit. 'You’re going to be lying down on the floor, coming down the Beachy Head road at over 50 miles an hour" he says. The course record is just over a minute, but Rory and Paddy are competing to see who can finish in under two minutes" After donning his safety gear and beginning training, Rory is apprehensive. “I always think that the more protective clothes I have on, the more worried I should be,” he jokes. On the big day, Paddy seems to have the victory in the bag after completing the course in just under two minutes. But does Rory have one final trick up his sleeve
