WNT ROTOR Pro Cycling’s 2020 Plans

Press Release

from WNT ROTOR Pro Cycling

On the eve of Liege-Bastogne-Liege, WNT ROTOR Pro Cycling are happy to announce they will apply for a UCI Women’s World Tour licence in 2020.

WNT ROTOR will put forward an application to be a part of the UCI Women’s World Tour. The new structure which will be introduced by the governing body will become a two-tier system from 2020 and as a team, we plan on being a part of the highest tier.

We are convinced the new system will make female cycling more professional and after having some positive meetings and discussions with UCI president David Lappartient and Morgane Gaultier, the women’s cycling co-ordinator, it looks to be a well thought-out concept and we are hopeful of gaining Women’s World Tour Status.

There are obligations which need to be met, including pay with a newly implemented minimum salary to our riders, as well as other insurances.

The feeling at WNT ROTOR Pro Cycling is that the sport and especially women’s cycling is moving in the right direction and this is another big step forward. We would relish the opportunity to be racing and representing women’s cycling at the top of an ever-changing future.

I think the UCI, David Lappartient and Morgane Gaultier have done a great job, to make an effective change to women’s cycling, we will be registering our interest with excitement to be a part of the 5 world tour teams in 2020.

Team Manager & Managing Director, WNT ROTOR Pro Cycling & Cutting Tools Europe

Race Report – Bickerstaffe Handicap Road Race

Well they say “when the going gets tough, the tough get going” and that’s precisely what the riders who took part in #SouthportCyclingClub #BickerstaffeHandicapRoadRace did today.

An excellent race with Sarah Hardy and Nicola Soden forming an early break off the front of the first group, which would see Sarah solo to the win after Nic punctured. The scratch group were at 2 minutes and a group comprising of Amy Gornall, Mads Scott, Jo Ryding & Maxine Filby bridging across. Amy and Jo then set out to chase down Sarah, along with Flora Knight, who worked together to stay away from Daisy Barnes and Harriet Gilson who tried to chase the three down. Sarah held on for the win, with Amy coming second, Jo third and Flora fourth. Harriet and Daisy held off the bunch for 5th & 6th. Rachel Brown led the bunch in, in front of Becky Gregson, Laura Gray, Sandra Mackay and Kate Taylor.

A great showcase for #WomensCycling and a big thank you to Colin Baldwin for supporting the women by promoting the event.

Rory Townsend takes the Title in the HSBC-UK National Road Series 2019 Opener

Rory Townsend got the better of Scott Thwaites [Vitus Pro Cycling p/b Brother] and HSBC-UK National Road Champion Connor Swift [Madison Genesis] in a three-man duel along Westgate in Guisborough in 4h 17m.

A ten-man group formed early on & led for 2/3rds of the 169km 3.5 lap course before dropping to four soon after. Matt Holmes & Tom Moses [Madison Genesis], Max Steadman [Canyon DHB p/b Bloor Homes] & George Wood [Swift Carbon Pro Cycling] remained defiant till the last small lap when Townsend & Swift went with Thwaites in hot pursuit.

Gabriel Cullaigh [Team WIGGINS Le Col] brought the chasers in 30s further back with Homes finishing 5th on the day.

Seventy-nine riders finished the gruelling Klondike course out of 137 starters with 3 King-of-the-Mountain primes in Saltburn-by-the-Sea. Zeb Kyffin claimed the prize for Ribble Pro Cycling.

The final 5k were pretty straight forward in the end. I knew if I made it to that point, the hardest part of the race would be out of the way.

There where 2 steep climbs about 9k to go so if I could get through that 4k, then I’d be all right.

There where loads of attacks to that point – coming & going – then 7 of us were away. We weren’t away long together as it soon went up-hill. Connor (Swift) went – I was just behind him – so I went some how. Scott (Thwaites) came across to us, I’ve no idea how. He’s a class rider – he can just do-it.

Going on to say as he screamed with delight going over the line: “I felt good coming into this race. I said to the guys I know I’m feeling good for this one. That put the pressure on me. But the boys rallied around me, really looked after me all day.  So I was relieved to pull it out for them.
