Based in St Albans, this new race team has evolved from the hugely successful Verulam Cycling Club (VCC) and will be sponsored by the leading home-moving comparison site, reallymoving.com and Ellisix, an aesthetic clinic and hair salon.
25 members of VCC have been invited to join the team which is focused towards youth riders, but also has a good mix of seniors, ladies and veteran (40+) riders. The team will be guided by former pro rider, Marcel Six, who will lead as Directeur Sportif and who will be responsible for coaching including race preparation, team building, tactics and planning. The team will race at various road races, closed circuit races and on the track within the Central Region.
Verulam CC Club Chairman Doug Driscoll explained “This is our way of putting something back into the sport and we will take great pride in having created the opportunity for talented riders in the area to get into cycle racing. We will follow their progress with much enthusiasm!”.
Coach Marcel Six stated “This is a fantastic opportunity for many of the talented riders in Hertfordshire. There is a lot of training to be done and I look forward to helping them achieve their potential. Look out on the podiums for the distinctive Verulam – reallymoving.com strip.” (To be confirmed by MS).
The Verulam Cycling Club is in its 90th
year and “business is booming” with an enviable membership of nearly 500 riders, making it one of the UK’s largest amateur cycling clubs. Their youth development/coaching programme has been running for a couple of years and the race team is a logical pathway to take the more talented riders through to cycle racing. This led the club to the foundation of an all new Racing Team: Verulam – reallymoving.com
Rob Houghton, founder and CEO of reallymoving.com states “We have watched VCC grow and encourage young riders over the years so we are delighted to be supporting this next chapter for this exceptional club.”
