Late February saw the launch of the Gillingham Wheelers Race Team at the Olive Bowl, Gillingham. Riders, friends, family and sponsors of the team gathered for the new squad to be unveiled by race team manager, Mark Geddes and road captain, Charles Rees.
Once the presentation concluded, the team took advantage of the dry weather to ride with club members and the youth development squad who they're hoping to inspire. The youth development riders for 2016 are Nathaniel Brookes, Daisy Davis, James Geddes and Connor Geddes.
We would like to thank the race team sponsors; Southern Filters Dorset, Celtag Agricultural Contracting, Wheels of Dorset, FlipAnt Clothing, MTec, Melinda Moore Massage Therapist, OTE Sports Nutrition, Howden Electrical, Specialized Tyres and Kalas Sportswear.
