Announcing our 2023 Elite Development Teams

Announcing our 2023 Elite Development Teams

Home » Road racing

We can today announce the road teams granted Elite Development status for 2023, supporting those elite road teams that go above and beyond to support talented British riders on their journey to success on the world stage.

First launched in 2021, our Elite Development Team status helps bridge the gap from club teams to UCI Continental level.

To achieve Elite Development Team status, teams are required to demonstrate a high level of support for their riders, providing them with a platform to develop, a comprehensive race programme and race day support. You can find out more about the criteria for selection here.

Applications for this season opened in December 2022, and we’re now delighted to be able to share the names of the teams which have been successful in securing the status for 2023. You can read full bios of our men's teams here, and our women's teams here.
