53026473 811821269216212 3139869140622245888 oIn December 2016, Verulam CC formed a racing team to provide the infrastructure and team support to nurture and grow talented riders. We have a particular goal of developing our youth riders and supporting them through their racing journey. 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. As well as competing, we have also hosted our own British Cycling Central Region road race for the last two years and will do so again in 2019.

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

This new team represents Verulam CC, club members & fellow cyclists, and our sponsors, putting something back into the sport and in particular, creating a pathway for the next generation. 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.
