Teams selected for the Youth Tour of Scotland 2014

News that British Cycling North East will be supporting teams to compete in the Youth Tour of Scotland has raised lots of interest, resulting in the most applicants ever for an event of this type. This reflects the increasing strength of Youth racing in the region and the fact that many riders have been engaged in the weekly Regional Coaching Cluster activities over the past year.

The teams have been selected by the Team Manager, Ian Murray, with the assistance of the Team Coach, Jon Bateman and with input from British Cycling coaches. The riders come from 6 different clubs and will be working together over the next month to develop team tactics and understanding ready for the event.

We wish them luck and will be interested to follow how the event goes.

The teams are:

Boys Team

  • Jake Dobson (Newcastle Phoenix)
  • Ben Moody (Achieve-Skinnergate Racing)
  • Aaron Preston (Cleveland Wheelers)
  • Ryan Abbs (Hetton Hawks)

Girls Team

  • Sophie Enever (Tyneside Vagabonds)
  • Helen Kotch (Stockton Wheelers)
  • Fiona Turnbull (Tyneside Vagabonds)
  • Alex Rimmer (Hetton Hawks)
