A bit about us...
FTR was set up at the end of 2015 by eight mates based in and around Leeds: Nick Guest, Julian Pearce, Jamie Tweddell, Chris Hoole, Benjamin Oglesby, Joe Wilkinson, Jack Fawdington and Tom Andrews. We finished 6th in the Regional Rankings in our first season, winning the NYERRL in the process.
At the close of the 2016 season, we formalised our ongoing partnership with kit supplier Milltag and became FTR Milltag. The Team was strengthened by the additions of Maciej Wontorowski and Dan McDermott, and we finished 3rd in the Regional Rankings.
2018 has seen two further additions to the Team; David Beckitt and Jonny Shuster. David has been an integral member of the group for several years, and is an ever-present on our weekly rides. He is always at the sharp end of training rides, and we've finally twisted his arm into pinning a number on his back. Jonny's main focus is off-road where he competes at Expert Category and scored 400+ points in 2017. He has been a 1st Cat on the road and won races at E/1/2/3 level in the past, so will be a welcome addition to any crits or road races he fancies turning his hand to.
We run Saturday Training sessions from Lawnswood School at 9:30am most weeks, typically 40-60 miles non stop averaging anything from 19-25mph. And through Summer a regular Tuesday night 30 mile thrash, averaging typically 23-26mph. These are tough rides, designed to push everyone taking part and if you can't keep up you'll be on your own.
See you on the road!
