Exciting news for the club!
Here's a message from outgoing Club President, Mat Mew:
"Over the past couple of months a few of us have been working away on an exciting future for the club. Today we're excited to announce that we have been offered Bristol University Kick Start Sport status for 2015-16.
What does this mean? This puts us on the starting line to the path of becoming a performance club, something only a handful of clubs in the University of Bristol have the privilege of being a part of. It allows us to gain increased resources for our top level athletes, primarily what we are gaining is access to coaching.
Now it's time to iron out the technicalities, but the future is looking bright for the UOBCC! Special thanks need to go out to Fred, Andrew and Cameron for their help putting together the application and support through the presentation process!"
In other news, on Sunday we had two riders fly the Bristol flag at BUCS Road Race in York. Cameron Toms reports a very tough day in the saddle.
