Swift Racing wishes to recruit an additional rider

Senior rider required for 2008

Someone with a "different dimension" to bring to larger races

Following an excellent to the year, Swift Racing confirms they are looking to recruit a senior rider for its 2008 road squad.  Backed by Swift Motorhomes under a long-term contract, the team are building a great young team with huge potential.  

Around these young riders are several experience heads including Olympian Emma Jones, Cyclo-Cross star Helen Wyman, and leader New Zealander Toni Bradshaw.  However the team have confirmed they are interested in hearing from other riders interested in joining the team.

"I believe we have the right structure in place in terms of our location, staff and sponsor base.  To finish things off we are looking to add another rider to the roster who can give us different dimension in major races such as the Tour de L’Aude and Tour of Flanders.  The added support of Museeuw and continued support of Bio-Racer means we can look to strengthen our team and increase our race calendar." said Team Manager Stefan Wyman.

Any riders interested should apply by e-mail directly to Stefan on stefan@teamswiftracing.com providing full contact details. 

The Swifit Racing season starts with a two-week training camp in the South of France at the end of February, before a return to the base in Belgium for the early season classic races.  The focus of the first half of the season will be Tour de L’Aude, which the team also participated in last season. 

"Our team house in central Belgium gives us the perfect location to base ourselves.  Within easy reach of so many races, the riders enjoy the benefit of much reduced travel times and longer periods in a familiar place," added Stefan.
