Daniel Kogan

Dan is a Surrey based cyclist, working at Sigma Sports as the content and social media manager.

He began cycling at the age of four and by the age of 10 or 11 was riding in the forest with his dad and friends. He was soon hooked.  Racing as a youngster opened up opportunities for Dan to race at a national level, both in the UK and Europe, racing for teams such as Orbea FGS.  

A few serious crashes at the age of 24 meant Dan stepped away from racing and joined Sigma Sports a few years later.

Dan guided our Gran Fondo Costa Almeria group in 2018 and went on to win the Gran Fondo itself - Chapeau!

James Spragg

James started cycling at fifteen years old. He trained for and competed in a wide range of disciplines from downhill to grass track, speedway to MTB and cyclocross. Eventually he chose to concentrate on the road. As a junior he was selected to ride for the Great Britain Talent Team, a development squad with Olympic potential.

Since then he has raced all across the world, starting in France moving to Australia and then onto Belgium, winning UCI races along the way and finishing as runner up in the Great Britain under 23 road race championships at the age of 18. Being a professional in Belgium for four years he has competed in races such as Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne, Brabantse Pijl and Tour of Belgium to name but a few. In 2013 James returned to cyclocross. He has since combined road and cross in Belgium.

James was the youngest person ever to qualify as a British Cycling Club Coach at age 17. He has since worked with athletes of all ages and abilities, from school kids to olympians.
