The VCUK Inspire Racing Team was established in 2014 ready to start racing in the 2015 season. The team is now approaching the end of the first season and the journey through the season has been fantastic. Five riders (Daniel Gibson, Tom Ashcroft, Lewis Hartley, Luke Cheetham and Halley Woods) have travelled wide and far competing in youth level Cyclo-Cross, Road and Track cycling events. This year the lads have had many regional wins and placings on the podium and have raced both nationally and internationally in Scotland, The Isle of Man, Ireland and Belgium.
The Dave Hitchen Fund has provided £1250 to send 5 riders to compete in the youth tour of Scotland in April 2016. Team manager Jerrod Hartley thanked Epic Kidz charity and told us: “We are very grateful for the funding received by from the Dave Hitchen Fund and can assure everyone that the funding will be put to good use!” He went further to say “These lads are extremely talented and it’s great that they are given such an opportunity to pursue their cycling dreams!”
