The Bike Warehouse, Wigmore, Bottecchia
Academy Race Team
Building the future of cycling, with our under 23's youth development program
A proven, track record of rider training, racing and mentor-ship, leading to placement of riders in continental teams
Building on the success of our 2016/2017 campaign, we are expanding our team through 2018
We have a true passion for bikes.
Our academy is a Kent UK based under 23's and junior Road Race Team
Our team and passion was born from the Wigmore CC's Go-ride club, who where producing talented riders, who once they grew older, didn't have a clear progression path into the sport they love.
After the Wigmore club spending years of hard work producing riders with so much experience, it was felt it was time to create the next step for those riders, allowing them to progress in the sport and giving back to the club who nurtured them.
With the combination of support from Bottecchia cycles and TBW (The Bike Warehouse Gillingham) the team was born.
Although driven to win, our aim within the team is all about developing our riders, with the modern professional peloton being such a complex environment, our riders are coached and mentored to develop them into fully-fledged pro-cyclists, working to enhance their self-discipline, their mental strength, their bunch riding skill and ultimately molding them into the ranks of professional cycling.
With our close links to Belgium teams, our aim is to help our riders make the jump to our continental team, where we can place riders, at the next level of racing.
Come and join us for the 2018 season, we are looking for committed sponsors to help support the upcoming season.
We can offer a number attractive packages, at various levels of buy in.
