Welsh Cyclings Junior programme riders will represent Wales at this weekend’s ‘The Next Generation’ contest at the Omnisport Arena in Apeldoorn, Netherlands
Ten riders are travelling to the international event, which runs from the 12-14 January, offering a full track racing programme for the junior riders against competition from across Europe.
Junior coach Stuart Meek said: “ ‘The Next Generation’ contest offers a great opportunity for the junior riders to experience racing at an international level.
“Competing against top international teams such as France, Holland, Poland, Spain and Germany will test and push our juniors to the very limit both physically and mentally; taking them to the next level of international racing.
“Riders have been working really hard in training, so we are looking forward to seeing how this translates into their racing performances. The competition is also a great opportunity to identify the specific areas that need future development within individuals.
“Riders will follow a full schedule of racing including Team Pursuit, Madison, Points, Scratch, Elimination, Tempo race and Derny racing over the three days.
“The Next Generation contest is an invaluable learning experience and I’m sure our junior riders will make the most of this opportunity.”
