The FTB Academy 2015
Being one of the UK’s most successful BMX race teams, we get a lot of e-mails from racers asking for sponsorship. However, being the reigning 2013 National No.1 Team and British Champions we’re rarely in a position to sponsor new riders as we already have a pretty stacked team. So, for the 2015 season we’re starting an additional team to give new riders the opportunity to prove their ability and potentially earn promotion onto the main FTB Dialled Bikes race team for future seasons. This new team will be called “The FTB Academy” and will be entered into the 2015 British Cycling National BMX Series in parallel to the current FTB Dialled Bikes race team. At the end of the 2015 UK national series, FTB Academy riders who have performed well over the course of the season at national and/or international level will then be considered for promotion onto the main FTB Dialled Bikes team. Hopefully, all future FTB Dialled Bikes team riders will be graduates of the FTB Academy. We are inviting applications for the FTB Academy from racers aged between 6 and 16 years old who currently have (or have achieved within the last 2 seasons) a Top 10 national ranking (or are on target to achieve a Top 10 national ranking this season). Brits or Worlds finalists in 2012, 2013 or 2014 will also be considered. The closing date for applications is December 31st 2014. Please e-mail your application including the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org:
