Team Swift Racing, a Women's Professional Cycling team based in Belgium, is looking to recruit a senior rider for its 2008 road squad. Backed by Swift Motorhomes under a long-term contract, the team is building up a young roster with huge potential.
Around these young riders are several experienced heads including Olympian Emma Jones, Cyclo-Cross star Helen Wyman, and leader New Zealander Toni Bradshaw. However, the team has confirmed they are interested in hearing from other riders interested in joining the team.
"I believe we have the right structure in place in terms of our location, staff and sponsor base," said team manager Stefan Wyman. "To finish things off, we are looking to add another rider to the roster who can give us a different dimension in major races such as the Tour de l'Aude and the Tour of Flanders. The added support of Museeuw and continued support of Bio-Racer means we can look to strengthen our team and increase our race calendar." .
The team's season starts with a two-week training camp in the South of France at the end of February, followed by a return to its base in Belgium for the early season classic races. The focus of the first half of the season will be the Tour de l'Aude, in which the squad also took part last season.
"Our team house in central Belgium gives us the perfect location to base ourselves. Within easy reach of so many races, the riders enjoy the benefit of much reduced travel times and longer periods in a familiar place." added Wyman.
Any riders interested in applying should do so by e-mailing Wyman at email@example.com, providing full contact details.
