Our Women's Race Team begain in 2015 with a team training camp held at Finlake, Devon, supported by Kalas Sportswear. The aim was to bring together aspiring athletes and provide them with a common platform to raise their performance including coaching support and world class products. We developed a team package that reflects our team ethos and enabled us to support our team riders in their development towards becoming aspiring champions.
The team’s spirit and camaraderie developed strongly throughout 2015 and was recognised outside of the team on many occasions. This drove the focus for the team in 2016, increasing the time spent training and racing together, with the aim of achieving a supportive environment for riders who are serious about racing and training to flourish, whilst having fun. This strengthened our central goal of rider and team development.
Whilst the core team of 2015 remained unchanged, we increased our numbers, focusing mainly on regionally based riders in the South and South West, this allowed us to achieve the team goal of training and racing more frequently together, embedding strategies and tactics regionally prior to taking them to National competitions, therefore providing the launch pad for the team’s success in 2016.
With our emphasis on rider development, the team has also supported a number of Youth A/Junior riders to be be nurtured, with the support of the senior team members, and feed into the senior team where appropriate.
All of our team members are expected to share their passion for racing and riding bicycles, through extending our team training experiences to the wider cycling community, encouraging other like-minded women, with similar needs and aspirations, to participate and compete.
