Madison Genesis (British UCI Continental team) is extremely pleased to announce a new addition to the 2015/16 rider line-up in the shape of former track team sprint world champion, Shanaze Reade.


Reade, born in Crewe, has joined the team to concentrate on track cycling and will be taking part in the 2015/2016 Elite Track Cycling | Revolution Series for Madison Genesis and also the National Championships held in Manchester from the 25-27th September.

When not racing on the track, she will join the team training camps and will be able to benefit from the guidance and experience of Team Manager, Roger Hammond. Shanaze Reade, speaking about joining the Madison Genesis team, said: “I am really excited to be on the Madison Genesis team, I love the bike and the kit so I can’t wait to use it at my first race next week at The Derby Revolution.”

On the announcement, Roger Hammond, Madison Genesis Team Manager, said: “It’s fantastic to have Shanaze join Madison Genesis. As a former multi world champion and Olympian, Shanaze is a unique rider as she has competed at the highest level in different disciplines of the sport, in doing so gathering a wealth of experience that we can all learn from.”

“It is going to be an amazing journey with the Rio Olympic Games looming in the not-too-distant future now. I’m really looking forward to being a small part of Shanaze’s preparations and ultimately, her bid for glory.”

Arguably most recognised for competing in both the 2008 and 2012 Olympics along with winning three BMX World Championship titles, Shanaze, 26, has shown her prowess in track racing numerous times. As part of the gold medal winning team at the first ever Women’s Team Sprint event at the 2007 UCI Track Cycling World Championships and then again in Manchester just one year later.

Kellie Parsons, Marketing Director at Madison, said: “We are so excited to welcome Shanaze to the Madison Genesis family. With the profile that she has in the sport, she will be a really fantastic ambassador for the team. It’s a real coup for us as she has such a fantastic attitude on and off the bike, so we are looking forward to working closely together this coming year.”

Formed in 2013, Madison Genesis is a British UCI Continental team with multiple victories and impressive performances on the international stage.
