Shrosbree off to France

Gregg Shrosbree (Merida UK) will be racing in France next season with the VC Riom team. Sandbanks based Shrosbree has been mixing his racing this season, racing both, on & off road. He took his first win on the road at the Brent Tor Road Race in July. However racing in France will be a big step up for the 19 year old. “I will be based in the Auvergne riding elite 1 day races and some stage races as well. It will be a big step up for me but it is a great opportunity for me to test myself and see if I have what it takes to play with the big boys. The area is mountainous so it should suit me.”

Shrosbree will spend most of the winter training in Dorset; he is a regular with the Bear Cross Sunday group, before a warm weather training camp with hills “to kick me into some real shape” The racing calendar has yet to be finalised but he expects to link up with his new teammates in the early spring. “I am pretty nervous but also excited to see how hard I can push myself and also be around a solid team with goals and great support”
