The Team Launch

Whilst there will be a full launch of all the VCUK teams together in early 2015, we met up yesterday to present our team to the sponsors that have supported us so far in our project.

Five Riders

It was great to get everyone in the studio’s of Transition Cycle Coaching over in Bury to chat and talk through what we have planned for 2015.

Representatives of the team sponsors with our riders:

Team and SponsorsThe team have received some great support from local and national companies and the riders took time out from their training schedules to meet and get to know them a little better.

Champion Systems/VCUK – one of our headline sponsors and it was great to see Ciaran from Champion Systems over to talk with team rider Halley Woods.
