Velo Performance are proud to announce our new women's cycling team

We are creating a new international women’s racing team and we invite talented riders from Europe to be a part of this exciting new project. The team will be based in the Algarve but will race a calendar in Portugal, Spain, the UK and northern Europe.

Our Foundations

Velo Performance was founded in 2016 by Iuri Jorge, after a number of years in the professional peloton. Whilst Iuri was racing, he achieved a degree in sports science which sparked a passion for coaching.

After retiring from his career as a professional cyclist, Velo Performance was created as a company dedicated to passing on his knowledge and experience to younger or less experienced cyclists, through coaching and also training camps in the Algarve.

2019 Vision

Velo Performance will create a women’s performance racing team for the 2019 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 currently looking for riders of varied skill sets to put together a strong all-round team. 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.
