ShoottheBikeRace spent the day with Sunsport Velo WRT on Saturday as initial plans for the 2017 season were tabled and discussed. Key to this was the new line up. Last seasons (smaller) squad has flown the nest so all the riders are brand new and fresh out of the box. There is a healthy mixture of youth and experience in the squad and this was the first occasion that many of the riders had met their new teammates and the support staff. It was a highly productive day with most goals achieved including bike and kit fitting, initial physiological assessments and publicity video and photography.
Now therefore seems to be the right time to begin introducing the team. So one a day for the next eight days kicks off with Liz Burrows. Liz will be featuring in an upcoming Q and A so we will keep it brief. She is a 33 year old West Yorkshire girl who has jumped across from Team Jaden Weldtite. Liz spent several years in triathlon before moving into road racing a couple of years ago. She therefore brings a wealth of experience gleaned from her time across the two disciplines.
More on Liz in next weeks Q and A and another name will be revealed tomorrow.
