MALE & FEMALE RACING TEAMS

VERIS MEN’S RACING TEAM

The Veris Men’s Racing team consists of junior, WAIS scholarship holders and elite male cyclists. Elite and senior athletes serve as mentors for younger generations of cyclists within and beyond the team.

Whilst the team races and engages in National Road Series races, the real focus is on the development of athletes and not results.

The development pathway demonstrates to corporations and business that cycling is a valuable option for sponsorship and marketing investment. Our focus is to bring competitive cycling to the mass of riders in Perth.

VERIS WOMEN’S RACING TEAM

The women’s elite Veris Women’s Racing (VR) Team in Western Australia is a leading example of what can be achieved by people who come together with a common goal.

The team has a representation of senior experienced and young up and coming riders with a bright future. Senior riders provide leadership and advice to junior riders and provide a support network previously scarce in women’s cycling. The team also supports a development group with the aim of filtering into the registered team.

Competition includes supporting local club racing, state championships and National Road Series (NRS).  In 2016 the team also partnered with a European based initiative to support riders internationally.

The women’s team play a role in community events and spreading the cycling word and encouraging more women to ride bikes more often. Through the monthly “Liv Ride Perth”, our team members reach out to many women to help improve their confidence, skill and love for bike riding.
