2020 Vision

Velo Performance will create an elite women’s performance team for the 2020 road season.
Our aim is to create a team that runs in the same way as a professional team, with professional standards. Cyclists and coaches will work together to create a structured training program for the season ahead to get the best performance out of each cyclist. With Velo Performance, riders will have the chance to learn new skills, teamwork strategies and tactics that are vital for success in the races. We are very excited with the line up that we have for 2020 - each rider will have a valued role within Velo Performance Racing and we will work with individuals to develop their natural abilities and maximize their potential as the season progresses.

Our Foundations

At the end of 2018 Velo Performance formed a new women's cycling team for 2019 season, with a competitive national and internacional calendar.

In March 2019 the team won it's debut race and has gone to win another 16 races through the season, including the Overall Classification of the Portuguese Cup, and the Overall Classification (individual and team) of the British National Criterium Series.

The key goals of Velo Performance are to educate the cyclists, developing their individual skills and encouraging their passions to be the best they can be. On top of this to give each cyclist the experience of being part of a supportive and well structured team.
