Maindy Flyers Youth Cycling Club is helping to promote the South East Wales Performance Cluster. This is a 3 hour session for Youth A and B riders, with a focus on skills development and improving racing standards. 

The sessions will include activities on and off the bike to underpin physical challenge with knowledge and understanding and will be designed to form an intense part of a structured week of training.

The sessions have been arranged and promoted by Maindy Flyers YCC, but the aim is to bring together clubs and work together to develop riders as a group and not as individuals. Therefore, clubs that wish to nominate riders for these sessions need to provide some coaching support to work alongside coaches from other clubs, Welsh Cycling and British Cycling coaches.
