The South West’s road team Primal Europe recently launched at the Mountbatten Water sports centre in Plymouth Devon. The team principally sponsored by Primal Europe Cycling apparel company had a successful 2011 with over 25 wins across the country.
Judith Smith European Sales Director said “we were so proud of the team in 2011, not only did they win lots of races but inspired the development of a totally new cycling club.”

Finally the assembled audience got to see some unusual training tips from their youngest rider Tom Stockdale (below) before heading in for some fine pasta kindly provided by the Mountbatten water sports centre.
