Cycling Club Isle of Man confirms it will compete in 2022

Organisation aiming to provide more opportunities to talented riders

Cycling Club Isle of Man has announced it'll compete for the first time later this year.

The organisation says only its men's squad will be taking part in events in 2022.

The long term aim of the club remains to have both men's and women's teams established to participate on the international stage going forward.

One key aspect of the club's mission is to provide more opportunities for talented local cyclists to pursue wider careers in the sport beyond the age of 18.

Former Manx rider, Conor Davies, has also been announced as the Team Manager.

He says the Island already has 'an amazing pool of talented riders thanks to the cycling structures that we already have on the Isle of Man.'

More details about the team's calendars, riders and kit will be announced in the coming weeks.
