British riders Ian Holt and Ross Muir are looking for riders to join them on a new UK-based team that will concentrate on track and criterium racing. The duo have had a successful 2005, with Holt winning the London GP and posting good results in overseas trips.
"Crit racing is definitely on the up at the moment with the British Circuit Series being hotly contested this year and arguably generating more excitement and attracting more of the UKs top riders than the Premier Calendar series," says Holt, "We are setting up a 4 man team with the aim of winning the Circuit Series and competing seriously in crits and track races abroad."
Holt and Muir were supported by Viner Bikes this year, and will announce a 2006 sponsor shortly. In the meantime, they want to hear from to hear from riders who specialise in crits at the top level, have track experience at British level or are accomplished road racers willing to give track and crits a serious go. Candidates must be strong team players willing to work as part of a tight knit squad. In return, says Holt, riders will receive a great sponsorship package and be part of a team ready to make its mark in 2006.
Interested riders should email their CVs to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
