Championship Programme

This is now available from Paul West on Request.

Pre Championship Training

Those riders pre selected for the Great Britain Team are being invited to a series of Training Campos throughout the year. As well as Technical training there is also regular fitness checks and talks on various topics linked with preparing riders as best as possible.
