Support the people that support our sport

Trevor Brown April 3, 2019

We work with brands that want to support women's cycling and understand the task that still lays ahead. I'd like to thank all our sponsors for their continued support. This project really would not have been possible without your help.

We'll have more announcements on sponsorships in the coming weeks.

Skillbase Group

Established in 2001 Skillbase is an international contract recruitment consultancy providing specialist consultants for many market-leading companies within the Telecom and IT sectors.

Through our contingency workforce solutions program, we provide a comprehensive end-to-end management solution for directly sourced contractors and non-approved suppliers globally. We step in and manage the whole end to end process dealing with all the areas of the business required to validate the contract, ensure compliance and a happy contract workforce.

KTM Bike Industries

KTM are Austrian bike manufacturers founded in 1934. Although perhaps more famous for their motorcycle division, KTM produced their millionth bike in 1989 and now produce around 200’000 bicycles per year.

Our riders currently sliding through corners on the Canic for cyclocross and hitting the jumps on the Myroon Master for MTB XC.

We started talking to Richard Lang and Spok'd at the start of 2019 and gave feedback on their coaching app that provides personalised training plans. The team has been giving input and feedback on the new MTB plan that launched this year. The team have found a great benefit in being able to rely on a system that supports their growth and protects their bodies.

The app is basically a coach in your pocket. Checking to see how well you performed this week, to then set your plan for the next. But it also takes into account your sleep and general energy levels.

One of the biggest issues for young athletes is the potential for burn-out. Spok'd helps our riders manage the demands of training and racing with the day-to-day stress of life, school and work. Together with their philosophy that takes into consideration the whole athlete life, the Spok'd is helping to manage the continual and grandual development of our riders.

MSC Tires

Available in the UK through TerraVenture, MSC Tires project was born in 2017 after 20 years of experience with some of the biggest bicycle tire brand's distribution like Maxxis or Chaoyang, including design and engineering projects. MSC Tires is the most ambitious project since the company's foundation and offers some of the highest quality and innovative tires worldwide.

Our riders are digging the Roller for dry conditions and the Tractor for variable terrain.

Latest addition is the Rock and Roller, which we trialed at Hadleigh Park, National Series XC. We thought it was great. Will be available in 29 first. 27.5 to come.

Doppio Slavo

Express your inner adventure with Doppio Slavo style.

Unique designs, hand printed in Cuenca, Spain on high quality fabric. This is a multi-sport sock for cycling, running and post race causal wear.

Amazing designs are only the start with the Doppio Slavo Socks. They have a light compressive function around the bridge to stay secure on your foot.

Squirt Cycling Products

Established in South Africa Squirt Cycling Products have grown from their original and revolutionary water based wax lube, to provide a host of innovative products to cyclists: bike wash, anti-chafing barrier cream and tyre sealant

We've been using Squirt Lube for some time now and enjoy how clean it keeps the bike, the performance and the extra life chains have.

Squirt is a unique chain lubricant – it contains waxes and water in emulsion form that stays clean, lasts long and extends drive train life. It is 100% biodegradable and available in three sizes. 100% recommend.

Torq Fitness

We're proud to say we are #TorqFuelled.

Our riders have been using Torq for some time now, but what makes Torq different is their background in educating athletes to prepare for optimal physical performance.

Torq have also produced some of the most exciting and innovative products in the sports nutrition market, such as the very tasty mince pie energy bars. We have trouble keeping away from these when we aren't riding.

Torq also have growing range of vegan and organic products and diabetes specific nutrition to make sure you fuel the way you want to.

Challenge Tyres

In cyclocross Challenge Tyres are world leaders.

They provide a range of tyres that meets all needs, from beginner to seasoned pro. Whichever tyre you select from the range you can be sure of a comfortable and engaging ride.

The team favourite is the Baby Limus. It can do most things that a UK course can throw at it, which can often be a mixture of mud, hard pack, grass, woods and tarmac.

In the UK, Challenge Tyres are available through Upgrade Bikes.
