Starting in 2019 we have offered fully supported Cyclocross trips to Belgium. These were a huge success. All the young riders we took loved rubbing shoulders with the big guys and girls of the sport and progressed massively as a result. Read below to see what this service entails.
Completely hassle-free to the rider. We have a van that we drive to Belgium for each trip. We either offer a pick-up service or collection from Brussels airport can be arranged. We can even pick up your equipment and meet you at the airport for the full VIP experience.
Receive bike orientated accommodation at a discounted rate. All accommodation will have cycling-specific areas to use for bike storage and bike maintenance.
A time schedule will be created for each race, so the riders just have to get out of bed on time. The van will be packed and bikes prepped ready for the race. During the race riders will be fully supported in the pits and bikes will be washed prior to leaving the race.
Travel insurance will be provided. Race insurance will have to be purchased by the individuals if required.
We offer a free coaching plan during the 2-month build-up to and during the trip. We like seeing riders do well we want you to be as prepared as possible for the challenge ahead. Whilst in Belgium you will be shown around the area and will be given downloadable GPX routes for every type of session.
As well as our self-funding scheme, we can offer advice on other grants and funding sources to look into.
On a rest day, you will have the option to go and see some sights, from the Ridley bikes factory to the medieval city of Gent.
Before each trip, you will get the chance to speak to a UK Cyclocross professional, they will share their experiences with you and provide expert insight into what it is like to race in Belgium
