Meet the Cycle Studio Team

Alex Keeling-Morgan, Manager and head mechanic
Alex’s cycling history: Alex had the Lickey Hills as his front garden in his youth, which inspired him to start cycling aged 13. He’s been cycling ever since.

Bike Alex rides:  a Cube Reaction TM hardtail MTB and would love a Trek Emonda SL

Alex’s favourite piece of cycling kit: Brightly coloured socks!

Alex Keeling-Morgan joined The Cycle Studio in November 2015, having previously visited us on a number of occasions to stock up on cycling gear. Coming to us after eight years as Head Mechanic at the Specialized Concept Store in Birmingham, he’s Cytech Level 3 qualified and is the Manager and a Mechanic at Redditch store.   Alex is a huge fan of brightly coloured socks, so if you see someone riding around The Cycle Studio with crazy-looking socks, it’s probably him. His favourite thing about cycling is simply being outdoors, which he describes as “the best thing in the world”. He’s also a big fan of coffee stops when he’s out on his bike.
Gary Walls: Redditch Store sales and repairs
Gary’s cycling history: Gary has been riding bicycles since he was 3 years old (that's a lot of miles!)

Bike Gary rides: fat bikes!

Gary’s favourite piece of cycling kit: a dropper post

Gary is probably more well known as "rocketdog" and his beard is more famous than he is, it gets more likes on instagram and twitter than he does. more of an MTBer than a roadie he's usually found sat astride a fat bike, when asked why he'll come up with excuses about the increased grip, the ability to ride all terrains etc but the reality is he just likes to be a bit weird and craves the attention.
working at the Redditch store since july 2016 he's got years of knowledge of bikes and can talk the hind legs off a donkey about them. now under the wing of Alex the Manager everyday is a school day as he refines his skills with the spanners.

Meet the Race Team

Corinne Moss - Triathlete
Occupation: GB Age-Group Triathlete + Project Co-ordinator at the Royal Forestry Society

Career highlight: Qualifying to race for Great Britain at her first standard distance triathlon

Bikes Corinne rides: Corinne rides three different bikes: the Cervelo P3 (which she describes as “the thoroughbred!”), the Bianchi via Nirone (“the faithful ‘old donkey’ that brought me such unexpected success in 2014-5!”) and a much loved, but very old, mountain bike, about which she says “the less said, the better!”

Corinne Moss got into racing in 2014, when her husband challenged her to complete a triathlon before she reached the age of 40. Competing in her first triathlon event (the half-Ironman Avenger Middle Distance at Ragley), she caught the racing bug, finishing 2nd in her category and 6th woman overall. Since then, her life has become consumed with training and competitions, and she’s gone on to achieve many more wins.

In 2014 she was the only amateur to beat professional cyclists at the Street Velodrome pro-am race series in Yorkshire, achieving first place in the amateur category and 2nd woman overall. In the same year, she also won the Breeze 100km women’s sportive. This was followed, in 2015, by achieving first lady in her age group at the Avenger Middle Distance Triathlon, the Phoenix Sprint Distance Triathlon and the Bilton Grange Sprint Distance Triathlon, where she was the first veteran lady by over 8 minutes and just 6 seconds behind the first lady. She was also first lady overall at the Warwickshire Sprint Distance Triathlon.

At the Bala Standard Distance European Qualifier in 2015 she proudly achieved automatic qualification for the European Championships. This year, Corinne plans to compete at the European Triathlon Championships in Lisbon, Portugal and she aims to finish in the top 3 in her category at the British Standard Distance Championships. She also hopes to qualify for the World Triathlon Championships, as representing Great Britain is her biggest ambition.

Unsurprisingly, cycling is Corinne’s favourite triathlon stage. She spends 10-12 hours a week training in all three triathlon stages, working on her speed, endurance and technique with the help of coach Dave Knight of Do3 Coaching. We’re sure all her hard work will pay off, and we’re looking forward to watching her progress throughout 2016.
Eloise du Luart - Triathlete + Cycle Studio Sales Staff
Occupation: Triathlete

Career highlight: 2014 Age Group European Triathlon Champion

Bikes Eloise rides: Specialized and Cervelo P3

Eloise has been running for as long as she can remember. She started her sporting career at senior school playing lacrosse for six years, three of which she was a member of the Senior and Junior England Lacrosse Squad. Following an injury during her gap year that led her to discover spinning, she took up triathlon racing when she began her university degree in September 2012. She has her manager in her gap year job to thank for getting her into triathlons. Having ignored his advice to start triathlon training, she finally relented and entered a race. She’s never looked back!

Since starting her career as a triathlete, Eloise has collected an impressive list of achievements in races throughout the UK and overseas. The one she’s most proud of is being crowned 2014 Age Group European Triathlon Champion, but other highlights include Age Group World Champion at the World Age Group Duathlon Sprint Championships in 2013, 1st in the Dijon Triathlon in 2015 and 1st Age Grouper in the Ironman 70.3 Luxembourg.

This year, Eloise aims to race as a professional on the Ironman 70.3 circuit, and she hopes to make the podium at the Elite UK Duathlon Championships, Hever Castle and Alpe d’Heuz. She’s also aiming for a top 5 placing in at least three of the Ironman 70.3 races, including at least one podium.

Eloise’s biggest ambition is to win both the Ironman and Ironman 70.3 World Championships, and we’re sure that’s well within her grasp.
