The Junior Tour of Wales is one of the longest standing, and most demanding, events in the Junior Road Calendar. It takes place over the August Bank Holiday weekend (29th-31st August) and consists of 5 stages, including a TT, 3 open road stages and a circuit race. Details of the race can be found at: http://www.juniortourofwales.org/
The North East Region will be entering a team of 4 male Juniors for this race and is now seeking applications from riders interested in competing in this event, as well as applications for the positions of team manager and team coach.
The Youth and Junior Workgroup will pay entry fees of the selected riders, but they will be responsible for their own transport, accommodation and subsistence costs. Reasonable expenses of the manager and coach will also be met.
Rider selection will be based upon results in the National Junior Race Series, the National Junior Championship and other races on the open road up to 18th July 2015. The team will be selected and riders informed by 22nd July 2015.
The team manager and coach should have experience of working with young athletes and be prepared to undertake an online course in child protection, if they do not already hold this. Other desirable characteristics are experience of convoy driving in cycling events, basic mechanical knowledge and experience and knowledge of cycling events.
For riders: Please send a brief cycling CV, which includes the races that you have entered this season and your results.
For Team Manager and Team Coach: Please send a short (maximum 1 page) application outlining previous experience and how you would approach this event.
