Gordon is also registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and is a Retül University certified bike fitter.

Continued Study and Research Interests

Gordon has just completed an MSc in Applied Sport Science at Worcester University. His research interests include: biotensegrity, fascia, the interrelationship between tension and compression in the body, the affect of dysfunctional fascia upon movement and performance, functional movement and its impact on performance and wellbeing and enhancing human performance.

Retül Bike Fitting

While beginning to develop as a Science, bike fitting is still at its infancy. It’s for this reason that Gordon uses the latest Retül 3D technology to capture the rider’s movements which form the basis of the bike fit. Retül is the bike fitting system of choice for Team Sky and Britain’s Cycling Team GB as well as many other Professional Cycling Teams globally.

Although the choice of fitting system is important, it’s the experience of the fitter that is crucial to a successful bike fit. Gordon has three decades of competitive cycling experience combined with a thorough knowledge of bio-mechanics, injury and sports movement. Our fit sessions at OMC include advice on posture,training, nutrition, injury recovery and flexibility.

Gordon is also a Cytech accredited cycle mechanic
