Meet our support team: Ben Hill
13 April 2022
Ben Hill is the leader of our support team here at Today’s Plan and has been with us since 2020 in our head office in Canberra, Australia. Having spent the last 10 years racing his bike across Australia and internationally, he is a welcome addition to our team.
Well renowned for telling a good story with enthusiasm, he brings excitement and energy to our team and is often overheard analysing whatever recent sporting event has taken place in the last week. He can still be found racing across Australia for local cycling team CCS Cycling, and helps mentor a number of junior cyclists in the local area.
Ben has been a coach for many years now and knows the Today’s Plan platform like the back of his hand, and provides great support to fellow coaches and athletes. He is also a successful Zwift racer, coming 4th in the most recent E-sport World Championships.
After becoming a father in 2020 for the first time he hasn’t slowed down and while cycling is Ben’s main sport of choice, he has tried everything from off road duathlons, triathlons, cricket and even ultimate frisbee in recent years since retiring from his professional cycling career.
Q & A
1. What motivates you to get up in the morning and train day after day?
I enjoy exercise. I don’t feel myself without doing something. But what motivates me to “train” is a goal. I need to have something to work towards if I am really to push myself. This will often be a race but it could be a Strava segment or sometimes I will simply make a plan to improve my peak power chart or PI.
2. What is the best piece of advice you’ve received?
Go to bed. I think life is better when you have enough sleep. It’s not always easy to do but now I am a father I really try to action this whenever I get the opportunity.
3. What are the unwritten rules of where you work?
Don’t talk about last night’s bike race until you know everyone has seen the replay.
