In the 1970’s – 1980’s Jim broke national records in the 15km, 40km, and 80km individual time trial disciplines. In 1980 Jim was part of the long list selection for the Moscow Olympics.

Jim Glover still holds the world record standing start 4,000 meter pursuit record on a velodrome for HPV (Human Powered Vehicle) that he set in 1985 and the HPV world record flying 200 meters for conventional position bike that he set in 1986.  These world records have been in place for over 20 years.

In the 1990’s Jim had the honor to coach and mentor Gord Fraser.  He also coached Gord to hold the Official Canadian National 15km Individual Time Trial record. Pretty good for the winningest North American Born sprinter!

Today, Jim coaches athletes all over the world using the telephone and internet. These athletes have reached new Peak Performances through his coaching.  Jim has coached World Age Group Champions, North American Champions, National Champions, Provincial Champions, in many age categories, in cycling, duathlon, and triathlon.
