Race Team

SunSport Velo Women's Race Team

About the Team

In early 2016 Sunsport Coaching and Velo Espresso of Altrincham combined forces to create Sunsport Velo Womens Race Team. Following a solid and sucessful debut season the team was revamped over the winter into the force it has now become.

We are represented on the road by eight highly talented riders of varying experience and background, from Junior level upwards and our aim is to develop these riders by giving them a variety of top quality racing supplemented by the cutting edge physical advantages gained from being associated with the Sunsport Velo Performance Hub. We also give our sponsors great exposure as a  result of competing in high profile and often televised events over the country.

Our approach is highly professional and we have at our disposal some of the most advanced kit available in ordr to give us any advantage we can over the opposition.

On Sunday we were competing in the Lincoln Grand Prix for the third round of the Womens Road Series.

Fortunately our riders were unscathed although Liz did find herself the wrong...

Tour ta Malta 2017 Race Report

  • 14th April 2017

Liz and Gabby spent most of last week competing in the Tour Ta Malta. They both put in really strong performances and Gabby has done this report for us. The  tour of Malta is a multi-day stage race held the week before Easter every year. It consists of 4 stages; a TT on day one followed by three road races. The stages are short (generally no longer than 50kms) but the lumpy terrain and fast pace prove to be really testing for the legs and by the end of the 4 days I can...
