2022 Team Applications
We are considering rider applications for our 2022 team.
For 2022, our goal remains to support and develop riders on the road at national level whilst continuing to support and strengthen our existing regional team.
As a result, we are considering riders for our team on two fronts:
National Elite Development Team:
For the 2022 season, the team wishes to again support the development of U23 riders and those senior riders wishing bridge the gap between regional racing and the step up to national level. We are also looking for experienced senior riders to add depth and support the developing riders.
Preferably, riders will be have gained at least their first category license, however applications will be accepted from second category and over 23 riders who can demonstrate appropriate progression and aspiration through their racing or the experience/performances that can support the younger riders and achieve results for our team. Our passion is the development and education of riders within a supportive and ethical environment.
The race programme will be a balance of National B and National A races to give a breadth of opportunities. Our programme will include the national road series, UCI International Cicle Classic and the Tour Series; these races, where applicable, will be supported with team car, mechanic, soigneur and coaching support. We also hope to add a stage race opportunity to our programme should budget allow. Rider programmes can be individually discussed and tailored to maximise results and development.
At a regional level, we are looking to continue our strong presence and success in the East Midlands Road Race League (EMRRL) and regional races. These riders may also have the opportunity to join the team at national level races where appropriate opportunities arise. Our regional team offers the opportunity to progress to our national elite development team in future; a pathway that has seen numerous riders successfully do so. Ideally riders will be based in the Midlands. As well as the road disciplines, we are also keen to encourage riders in Cyclo-Cross, MTB and track cycling disciplines.
We strive to add to more to our offer but will not promise things we can not deliver; we do what we say we will do with no false promises.
Application for both teams is via an application form; please contact us for this and a team information sheet.
