Elite Cycling Team coming to Evia.
We are very excited to announce that elite cycling team, Cycling Sheffield Giant have chosen to come to Evia for a weeks training camp in September so we thought we’d let team manager and Directeur Sportif, Dave Coulson, introduce you to the team….
“CYCLING SHEFFIELD GIANT is one of the most successful cycling teams in the U.K.
This success is measured both in terms of race results and the rapid development of our riders.
The team is made up of talented aspiring riders aged 18-25yrs and our mission is to help our riders develop and further their careers as athletes by providing a professional and nurturing team environment. During the 2016 season we were incredibly successful. We finished in the top ten of the British Cycling National Series, ahead of several high profile teams including Team Wiggins.
We also achieved numerous victories and top ten results in National races.
The team race at regional, national and international level, travelling to races across the UK. The race program includes several high profile races in Yorkshire. The team has a strong local following along with a very credible national profile. For 2017 we plan to expand the race program to include some time in Europe. This will enable our riders to gain valuable experience and improve their form for target races in the U.K.
The race program will include National A and B races.
Looking further ahead, we hope to expand our race program and set up a junior team (16-18 yrs) helping younger riders, the best of whom would move into the senior team”
With our roots also firmly in South Yorkshire we couldn’t be happier that that Cycling Sheffield Giant have chosen to test themselves on Mount Parnitha and Dirfis climbs and explore Evia!
Keep your eyes peeled on Social media for plenty of news, updates and photo’s of their week in Evia.
In the meantime if you want to take advantage of the fabulous value and fantastic cycling we offer we have spaces available on our “Train like a pro” training weeks starting in February 2018. Spaces are already being taken so get in touch if you fancy getting 2018 off to a flying start!
