The Cycling Development Foundation, & Veris Racing, are pleased to announce the appointment of Raechel Paris as chair. Raechel Paris is based in Brisbane, Queensland, and takes over from Professor Craig Pennell’s, based in Newcastle New South Wales, appointment since the inception of the CDF.

Raechel was recently appointed and is excited by the prospect of furthering the values and vision of Veris Racing

“I am delighted to be associated with the Cycling Development Foundation and to take up the role of Chair. I would like to recognise the contribution of Professor Craig Pennell’s chairmanship over the past 3 years and CDF is privileged to have him remain on the Board.  CDF provides a unique and sustainable sponsorship model to create pathways for female, junior and male cyclists of all levels by partnering with organisations to achieve their corporate social responsibility aspirations.  The athletes supported by CDF and its major sponsors are required to contribute to community initiatives in return for the training, coaching and mentoring services they receive. I am personally very excited about the CDF’s future and wish to thank our major sponsors, Veris, Bond Junior Cycling, Giant Perth, Pharmacy 777, Pedal Mafia and Euroz for their ongoing support.”
