MUDIIITA AND BRITISH CYCLING COLLABORATE FOR THREE GREAT BRITAIN CYCLING TEAM 'CROSS CAMPS
The MUDIIITA Cyclocross Project and British Cycling have teamed up to host three Great Britain Cycling Team ‘Cross Camps this winter, with the first held this weekend at Thornbridge Outdoor Centre in Bakewell, UK.
MUDIIITA’s Nikki Brammeier joins this weekend’s camp as an expert, on hand to share advice on all things ‘cross, providing young British riders an exciting opportunity to tap into her knowledge and expertise.
The three-day programs will combine bike and running training, classroom sessions and a mini race to put the young talent’s new knowledge into practice. Brammeier is joined by Ian Field as an expert at the first camp this weekend, with attendees given the opportunity to put the pros to the test during a question and answer session on Saturday evening.
Brammeier said: “I’m really excited to be joining up with British cycling on behalf of MUDIIITA at this weekend’s first Great Britain Cycling Team’s ‘Cross Camp. I’ve always valued one to one face-time as a rider, so to be able to invest my time and pass on some of my knowledge and experience to the next generation of UK Cross riders is an opportunity I will grab with both hands. We have such an exciting pool of talent coming through at the moment which makes it more motivating to be a part of. I’d like to thank Matt Ellis and British Cycling for collaborating with MUDIIITA and pulling these camps together.”
Matt Ellis, cyclo-cross co-ordinator for the Great Britain Cycling Team, said: “This weekend, with the support of MUDIIITA, we are holding a training camp in Bakewell for our young riders to kick-start the cyclo-cross season. The focus of the camp is very much on development, with the aim being for the riders and their families to feel prepared for the world cup season ahead. The riders will meet the staff with whom they’ll be working with throughout the season, as well as getting in some quality training led by Nikki Brammeier - one of our country’s most successful cyclo-cross riders. The involvement of MUDIIITA has been key in organising this training camp, and we’re grateful for the support as we look to build on our success in cyclo-cross.”
The first camp starts on Friday 7th September and runs through until Sunday 9th September, with both male and female U23 riders attending. The following two camps are to be held in Belgium in October and December.
