The Hamilton Cycling Club and the Forest City Velodrome are pleased to announce the formation of a new youth development racing team to be known as "The Attack - Cycling Team". The team will contest all the Youth Cup races as well as selected Ontario Cup ("O Cup") races in Ontario beginning in 2012. The ages of the team members will be from 8 to 16 years old. The new team has adopted the policy of no child will be left behind.
The mission of the team will be to promote cycling with youth in the catchment area - from London to Oakville - through skills development with an emphasis on safety as well as to prepare and develop interested youth for competitive road and/or track racing. Parents will be encouraged to participate with club rides and activities throughout the year.
The team will be led by two experienced coaches, Rob Good and Henry Dudko, headquartered in London and Hamilton respectively. The team will have access to year-round training at the Forest City Velodrome, with weekly training rides throughout the year in Hamilton, Burlington/Oakville and London. All members of "The Attack - Cycling Team" will have individual personalized training programs to help build a solid foundation of training for the 2012 season.
The new youth team is currently signing Partners/Sponsors for the 2012 and 2013 seasons; interested Partners/Sponsors may contact the email address below to receive more information. The Attack - Cycling Team will be an affiliated club with the Ontario Cycling Association.
"One of the goals of the team is have 15 - 18 competitive racers going into the 2012 season. Our fun family oriented program will have families riding together to improve the health and fitness of the cycling community," commented Rhys Bateman, who was instrumental in getting the youth group off the ground in London in 2011.
