As previously announced, shared, tweeted and retweeted over the last few days I am proud to write about my new team for 2014; Madison presents Boot Out Breast Cancer Womens Cycling Team.
Managed through the guidance of newly crowned World Masters Pursuit Champion, Barney Storey MBE, we have 9 riders who'll each bring a number of skills to the table. These skills and strengths will be put to the test individually at times, with many a strong time-trialist on the team. However they will also be tested when working alongside each other, whether it be on the road, in the middle of a town centre crit or on the boards! Piecing the jigsaw together may take a little time but the experiences ahead and the personalities forming collectedly is definitely something I look forward to. We'd all like to be at the top step of the podium at some point in our careers but there is also no greater feeling than seeing a team mate with their hands up in the air, showing off their team jersey and sponsors they owe so much to!
In regards to sponsors, myself and the team will be supported by Madison, riding Shimano equipped Ridley bikes, racing in Pearl Izumi clothing with Lazer helmets existing in the ever expanding package. Another title sponsor for the team is Boot Out Breast Cancer where we hope to promote the work of this charity with a magnificent cause. A link to the Boot Out Breast Cancer website can be found below along with websites and twitter accounts related to the team.
Please stay tuned in with my blog as in the coming months I will have more details on the team's first cycling camp together and ultimately the official team launch taking place next March. Eek! The word exciting doesn't do the above justice :))
