Our Older Youth Riders lining up for their race.

We  run road skills training on a Saturday morning as well as more advanced sessions during the week for older riders. Our club has had a strong showing in regional and national races for many years which has led to the introduction of our Development Squad training for the coming year, crystallising what was already in place.

Our riders take part in local, regional and national races with great success. We also run Go Cross races for our novice riders who want to have a go in a friendly environment.

The most important race league run in Yorkshire is the White Rose Youth League. It is regarded as an important league where many of our now professional young riders have graduated from. It is also where the Yorkshire selectors for Regional Schools of Racing (advanced tuition by full time Olympic Programme Foundation Coaches) are spotted and where selection for Yorkshire Teams is considered.

All British Cycling registered events such as the ones below will all be on the British Cycling website and can be found in the BC Calendar on the site as events are registered:https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/

Provisional dates for 2017 are here:
