New signings for 2013

With the 2012 season coming to a close and our sights firmly set on the next road and track season, we have had the inevitable rider movements that always happens at this time of year.
Leaving us will be Jo Tindley, who has made a great impression this season and helping seal many team successes, off to join Matrix-Prendas.  Also leaving will be Bex Heath as her aspiring medical career takes her to Australia.  Hannah Layland is taking a break from the sport so will not be racing for the team next season.
Joining the team will be two young track and crit specialists in Hannah Manley and Jackie Garner.  Hannah joins us from For Viored, she is based in Bath for her first year at uni. Jackie returns to the racing scene having been out with illness.  We also welcome established road and cyclo-cross rider Nikola Butler, previously raced for Inverse.  Our last signing is a new talent in Jenny Hudson who is based at Bristol Uni in her 3rd year, next season will be her first and should prove to be a successful one.
These riders join our already established road and track teams within which we have a World Masters medallist in Adel Tyson-Bloor and returning Elite rider Marianne Britten to captain the team.

Team Training Weekend - 17/18th November 2012

The first of the winter training weekends got under way last weekend at Bristol, hosted by team captain Marianne Britten.


After recent bad weather the weekend was blessed with sunshine, especially on the sunday.  Covering 6 hours of hills over the two days was great in lovely weather.
