VERIS MENS 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 through community based initiatives.

ATHLETE DEVELOPMENT

Fundraising for the Foundation’s athlete development and racing programs will enable it to assist selected highly competitive cyclists to participate in local, national and international cycle racing events sanctioned by relevant governing bodies.

Funds are used to pay for

  • Coaching services
  • Cycling equipment
  • Training sessions
  • Travel costs and support staff.

Fundraising is via a mix of general purpose and specific “call to arms” campaigns, for purchasing equipment (bikes and wheels).
