17547127 399006073831069 3555761475913164684 oIn December 2016, Verulam CC formed a racing team to provide the right opportunity to nurture and support talented riders. This team is based in St Albans and from early 2017 has been competing successfully in mens and womens regional, national and international events, at all ages from youths through to veterans.

The team is co-sponsored by Verulam CC and reallymoving.com, with additional support from ellisix.co.uk. For the 2018 season, we welcome Rock & Road bikes and GPN Builders Ltd who have joined as sponsors. As well as competing, we also hosted our own British Cycling Central Region road race in 2017 and will do so again in 2018.

The Racing Team has regular coached team rides and has organised training camps including trips to Spain and Belgium.

We feel great pride seeing our riders achieving success in the racing world and knowing that all the club's support has played a key part in making it happen.
