Posted by Editoress on 11/7/13
The National Cycling Centre Hamilton (NCCH) is proud to announce its Select and Youth Select Squads for 2014.
We were very impressed with all applications, and to those who missed out, we urge you to train hard as we will be reassessing the Squad in March 2014. Some selected riders will be given a period of 4 months to reach certain standards in order to stay in the SELECT or Youth Select Program for the 2014 racing season.
16 of the 24 Selected riders have won National Medal/s in 2012 or 2013.
The Selection committee looks at a number of criteria when making its decision, they include:
• To be at National level, or ability (within 12 months) to be
• Performance & Results
• How they promote NCCH and Cycling
• How they relate to other members of NCCH
