Team press release

The British Road Race Championships will be held in Lincoln and a team to watch are a Lincoln team, Pro-Noctis/Red Chilli Bikes/Heidi Kjeldsen. Established by Lincoln man Rick Lister in 2020, the team have taken the road cycling scene by storm in what is only their first season.

Recently the team won the Road Series team crown for 2021 and will go into the British Road Race Championships as the leading domestic cycling team in the UK. The team of nine riders is led by Lincoln’s Jo Tindley, who last weekend took the East Midlands Road Race title in Market Rasen, with an impressive lead of 4 minutes, after a solo breakaway in poor racing conditions.

34-year-old Jo Tindley, one of the most experienced riders in the British peloton, has had a fantastic season. In August Tindley, secured the Tour Series blue jersey, having led the sprint competition from start to finish. The Tour Series is Britains leading televised series of cycle races.

Together the team have enjoyed unprecedented success.

“As a team with its base in Lincoln, we can’t wait to race on local roads in front of our local sponsors, hopefully, we can have a good few days of racing which will be the icing on the cake for us after a fantastic first season which saw us crowned as the 2021 National Road Series team champions. We know Lincoln will as always be a brilliant setting for such a prestigious championship.” Rick Lister, Team Manager, Pro-Noctis- RedChilli Bikes- Heidi Kjeldsen
