The Evans Cycles Race Team is now recruiting new riders for the upcoming 2006 season. They are after riders at the top of their game in all cycling disciplines – road, mountain bike, downhill, track, triathlon and time trial are all wanted!
In exchange for being an ‘ambassador’ for the Evans Cycles brand riders will receive the support they need to stay ahead of bunch in their competitive racing. This includes financial support, kit and equipment including some of the latest top end bikes.
The current team includes Alex Atkins – current Junior Mountain Bike and Cyclo Cross National Champion in his category and Elite mountain biker Jody Crawforth – 2004 Mountain Bike National Champion and Cyclo Cross National Trophy Series winner amongst many others.
“What we’re looking for are riders that are performing well at the top of their category” said Evans Cycles Marketing Manager Ben Hart. “Typically a rider who is consistently ranking in the top 10 in a national series. Of course they’ve got to have the right attitude as well, be self motivated and someone that can wear an Evans Cycles jersey with pride”. “The team is really important to us. It’s one of the ways that we help support the sport of cycling in the UK and help some of the nation’s best riders achieve their goals.” “We’re keen to help the grass roots of the sport and build a solid foundation for future years so are especially interested in hearing from any youngsters that are doing well and want to take their cycling to the next level.”
Evans Cycles has been expanding rapidly over the past few years and now operates 19 stores, but the size of the Race Team has remained fairly stable. “It’s only reasonable that our investment in the race team and the sport expands in line with the growth in the company.” Hart added.
