Raleigh Cross Bikes for CX Magazine Riders

Three of the CXmagazine.com Racing Team’s young riders will be tackling the forthcoming 2015-16 Cyclo-Cross season on Raleigh’s RXW Race bikes, thanks to a new deal with the cycle manufacturer.

The team’s three under-23 category riders Hannah Saville, Joanna Rycroft and Edwyn Oliver-Evans, will be competing in both National and Regional race series, plus the season ending National Championships in January 2016. They will all be riding bikes from Raleigh’s new 2016 Cyclo-Cross range, which for the first time includes female specific bikes.

The trio have already tasted success on two wheels in 2015, with Hannah the reigning Yorkshire Junior Champion, Joanna holding the Three Peak under-23 title and course record and Edwyn a recent double medallist in GB colours at the European Mountain Bike Orienteering Championships.

The www.cxmagazine.com Racing Team is run by veteran riders Steve Smales and Ted Sarmiento and Ted believes the Raleigh deal will give the team a significant boost: “We are all super excited by the additional help Raleigh is offering the team.

Having top-class equipment is crucial in a sport which puts both riders and bikes through extremely demanding conditions. Hannah, Joanna and Edwyn will all benefit hugely from Raleigh’s support. All three are training hard and can’t wait to test their new hardware in race conditions. Roll on winter!”

Pippa Wibberley, Raleigh Sales and Marketing Director commented. “Raleigh has always been committed to supporting young riders to help progress their careers in cycling. Cyclo-Cross offers us an excellent chance to help these young riders become the World Champions of the future.”

Hannah, the team’s newest and youngest rider is hoping to live up to Raleigh’s prestigious reputation as a world-class bike builder: “I’m really looking forward to racing the ‘cross season aboard a Raleigh bike, especially at the Three Peaks race this September, where, hopefully, the bike will help me be competitive.”

“I really appreciate the support from Raleigh and I’m stoked to be able to try out a race orientated female specific bike. It’s a vast improvement from the current bikes I’m riding and I hope I can do them justice this season by racing hard and getting them muddy!”
