Hailstone takes up coaching role with Cycling New Zealand

By Cycling New Zealand

Head Performance Coach of the New Zealand Para-Cycling programme Jono Hailstone will take up a new role with Cycling New Zealand as the assistant women’s coach.

Hailstone will renew his partnership with current women’s endurance coach Brendon Cameron who he worked with from 2010 to 2014 at Paralympics New Zealand.

He took over from Cameron after he joined Cycling New Zealand two years ago, and managed the New Zealand Para-Cycling programme, in planning and management as well as coaching.

Hailstone, who graduated from AUT with a degree in exercise science, worked in that capacity at the Millennium Institute as well as coaching cycling at Rangitoto College and with other individuals including last year’s cyclist of the year, Dion Smith. He joined Paralympics New Zealand as an exercise physiologist and coach in 2010, and also coached Cycling New Zealand junior teams in campaigns in Australia, Canada and the world championships in 2011. 

He became fulltime national development coach for Paralympics New Zealand in 2013 and assistant performance coach under Cameron in 2014 before taking over the reins.

Cycling New Zealand Performance Director, Mark Elliott said Hailstone would add considerable expertise to the coaching team, replacing Ross Machejefski who has taken up an International Coaching role.

Elliott said there has been significant development in numbers and quality in women’s cycling through the junior ranks with considerable international success in the last two years. Hailstone’s role will be to help develop this growth and improve the skill-set across to elevate the women’s programme to medal-winning capability on the international scene.

He will take up his post in mid January 2017.
