Podium Ambition Scholarship Programme

Podium Ambition Scholarship Programme

Alongside our core membership the Boot Out Breast Cancer Cycling Club is proud to be able to host the Podium Ambition Scholarship Programme riders. The Podium Ambition Scholarship Programme has been set up as an alternative to the traditional Pro Team Development squad. This means that instead of riders being a part of a race day team quota and potentially fighting for selection against the pro’s, the Scholars have their own autonomy and race team with links to the professional riders when needed.

Scholars receive free membership to the Boot Out Breast Cancer Cycling Club and race in club colours. Female riders from the general club membership will be invited to compete in key races with these riders when space is available, thus creating a true pathway from grass routes to professional.

BETH CRUMPTON

Already a GB rider for Cyclo-cross and Mountain Biking, Beth is targeting selection for the Mountain Bike World Championships in 2016 and will ride the road as part of her training. With role models like former World Champions Marianne Vos and Pauline Ferrand-Prevot, Beth has a bright future as she continues to gain technical ability and experience in a multi-discipline environment. Although only 21, she is a superb example of the grit and determination needed to succeed and we are delighted to be supporting her journey.
