Academy Race Team


Supporting the future of cycling, with our under 23's development programme.

A proven track record of rider training, racing and mentorship. Leading to placement of riders on continental teams.

Building on the success of our 2015/2016/2017 and 2018 campaigns throughout 2019.


We have a true passion for racing.


Our academy is a Kent UK based under 23's road race team.

Our team and passion was born from the Wigmore CC's Go-ride club, whilst they are able to produce young talented riders, those riders who had the drive and determination to move on didn't have a clear progression path into the sport they love.

After the Wigmore CC had invested in the future of young aspiring riders, passing on invaluable knowledge and skills to them it was felt it was time to create the next step for those riders, allowing them to progress in the sport and give back to the club who nurtured them, with the combination of support from Bottecchia Cycles and The Bike Warehouse TBW23 team was born.

As well as Bottecchia Cycles and The Bike Warehouse the academy is supported by Stuart Hall Cycling, Gett Taxi, Trainsharp, Clive Emson Auctioneers, Lake shoes, Velotoze, Endura helmet and glasses, Chapeau and Le Col.

Aside from the ambition to win, our aim within the team is concerned with developing our riders and furnishing them with the necessary skills to challenge, compete and succeed in the complex environment of the modern professional peloton.

Our riders are coached and mentored to develop into fully-fledged pro-cyclists, working to enhance their self-discipline, mental strength and technical riding skills. Ultimately moulding them into professional cyclists. 

Supported by our Belgium partner team Handi-Ness, the aim is to help riders make the jump to the Continental teams, where we can place riders at the next level of racing.



Come and join us for the 2019/20 season. We are looking for committed sponsors to help support the upcoming seasons.

We can offer a number attractive packages, at various levels for a variety of sponsors.
