ABOUT INNOVATION RACE TEAM
In 2017, we started a racing team to guide young racers on the pathway from participation to professional. The ethos is to nurture the development of the rider into a rounded individual, and not at the expense of winning at all costs.
We are based in the North West, with riders from Stockport, Preston, Liverpool and Newcastle-under-Lyme. We cater for road, time trial, cyclocross and track racing. The team principal is Billy Ackers,
The team roster is small, consisting of seven juniors and four youth riders, enabling us to offer a personalised and bespoke development plan for each rider, based on the riders and parents goals.
The riders we have identified are of the highest standard, some of which are currently embarking on the British Cycling Regional school of racing program, the first rung on the ladder at the Medal Factory, more commonly known as the Manchester Velodrome.
We compete regionally, with the intention of qualifying for national events, in addition we are planning a couple of racing weekends in Belgium, during the Spring and Summer 2019 to compete in local races.
We have had a very successful two seasons, with numerous podium places, national points and National titles too boot. The bar has been set high and we will strive to surpass this season.
