Speaking about the change of title sponsor, Team Director Barney Storey said, “The support of Pearl Izumi to the team reflects the commitment of the brand to cycling and our girls will be well kitted out on their bikes as a result.”

Debbie Dowie, the founder of Boot Out Breast Cancer, is also delighted with the partnership and the availability of kit for general sale, “This is a fantastic opportunity for us to further increase the visibility of the charity on a national level. Having the girls and charity supporters wearing the kit will help further our fundraising.”

CNP Professional have also joined up with the team as nutrition partner for 2014 and will be providing energy and recovery products to the team during racing and training. Having worked alongside team captain, Dame Sarah Storey, for a number of years, the brand are delighted to be involved with the new team.


The girls who make up the team for 2014 have been busier than ever in their preparations for the new season. Katie Archibald (above) is now an established member of the Great Britain Team Pursuit Squad, having just been part of the team that broke the world record twice in a day to win the second World Cup in Mexico. Dame Sarah Storey made a successful return to racing following the birth of her daughter in June, with a win at the Newport International Paracycling Cup last weekend.

In winning the 3000m Individual Pursuit, Dame Sarah’s time was still quick enough to have won the Paralympic Gold last year, despite her relative lack of fitness. Revolution round 2 saw impressive performances by both Ciara Horne and Charline Joiner and Hayley Jones, currently in Australia, has been in winning form whilst soaking up some much needed sunshine!

With less than a month until 2014, the team is now looking forward to its winter training camp at Club La Santa from December 12th.
