True Grit

Pro Cycling is a very unique cycling team.  Armed with the lowest operating budget amongst UK rivals and offering both men and women’s teams, this group is not afraid of challenges.  

Despite competing against some of the biggest names and teams with millions of investments, Pro Cycling remain on the circuit, accomplishing this by staying in low budget hostels and motels, eating at all-you-can-eat buffets to get their calorie intake up, and improvising on locations for team meetings, bicycle workshops and medical assistance.  This team has true grit and passion for the sport.
