Alan Milway shortlisted for Coach of the Year award

Alan Milway has been shortlisted for  the ‘Coach of the Year’ award at the Birmingham Sports Awards.

Following nomination by the High Performance department at the University of Birmingham, Alan has now been shortlisted by a selection panel as one of the 3 finalists for this award.


“It is flattering to be recognised for the work I do, but it is even more satisfying to have the sport of Downhill Mountain Bike racing recognised in a mainstream environment.”


Alan works primarily with Atherton Racing and Madison/Saracen downhill teams, whose riders have excelled this season, most notably: Rachel Atherton is currently leading the World Cup series and is the current World Champion, Gee Atherton is leading the World Cup Series having won the first 2 events, and Manon Carpenter has 3 second place finishes at World Cup events so far, and is currently 3rd in the series.


The Birmingham Sports Awards will take place on 19th September at Edgbaston cricket ground.
