National Schools of Racing (NSR) are designed to enable the talent development programme to turn up and down the volume of delivery on certain disciplines and genders.

NSR activity enables the talent development team each year to accelerate growth in areas which require more support, this in turn supports progress into Great Britain Cycling Team programmes.  

What is the focus?

  • BMX
  • MTB
  • Track/Circuit
  • Track Sprint 

How do you get on an NSR?

Riders here are typically a year younger than the age they can move into the Great Britain Cycling Team, riders will be invited from Development Centres and RSR sessions by the talent development coaches.

How is it done?

These sessions will connect with Great Britain Cycling Team (GBCT) programmes - disciplines will share sessions (track time, camps etc) supporting a smoother transition.  

When and where do NSR sessions take place?

During the year, NSR sessions will be delivered and will align with the racing season, sessions will normally bring a cohort of riders together in one location.
