Rides News seeks young blood

Southern-based cycling club Agiskoviner are looking to recruit younger riders to the ranks of their development team which they see as fundamental to their rash of recent successes.

A relatively new club, founded in ’95, Agiskoviner are keen to build a reputation as a winning club, and they believe the key to this lies with the youth. Whereas some clubs can be a little forbidding to new young riders, Agiskoviner are keen to nurture young riders through their ranks, ensuring, they say, that the youngsters develop the right attitude and motivation to be team players. And ‘team players’ are at the heart of it all because, as we all know, individual brilliance is all well and good, but it’s teamwork that brings home the medals. Technical support is from the Sussex based retailler Camza.

Some members of the team.

‘We are delighted that everyone is showing early signs of a great team spirit and cohesion at all levels across the club, keeping with the principles and ethos that the club and teams was set up against.’

So far the approach seems to be paying off for the club. At the recent 24 mile MOD Chertsey race many of the team placed high in the rankings, particularly Brett Perez with a win, and Toby Meadows a 3rd place.

So, they’re not doing badly, but they’re always on the look out for new young talent, so if this sounds like this might be the club for you to start out in then you can find out more from their website or contact their secretary, Gary Kristensen, on 0118 9761794 or email [email protected]
