In 2016, Drops announced the launch of their own UCI registered Women’s Cycling Team, with the aspiration to be the most professional women’s amateur team in the world, providing a viable alternative to British Cycling’s Academy system. The foundation of the Drops Cycling Team ethos is to create a happy and supportive environment where riders can develop and reach their true potential.
We are thrilled with the reception of the team and the professionalism of our riders so far who have performed well in both domestic and international races. The image and success of Drops Cycling Team is largely down to our fantastic array of sponsors who range from instantly recognisable industry leaders as well as specialist businesses local to us in Milton Keynes.
This season we have a number of exciting opportunities including both the Tour of California and Tour de Yorkshire – two of the biggest races in women’s cycling. We intend to grow our team and support network each year so that we can continue to give opportunities to fantastic female cyclists in some of the world’s biggest competitions.
