Our passion for cycling runs deep. Getting young people involved in cycling and the sport is very important to us. The junior racing scene in the UK is not the best it could be. Giving young riders the opportunity to race and have a great experience has been our aim since starting our support of The Fenwick's Junior Tour of Mendip (JToM).
In 2019 our first year of sponsorship there was the ambition of taking the event from 2 to 3 stages. Which was achieved and the racing showed the strength of young talent in the UK. Unfortunately like many events we had to cancel the race in 2020. However, 2021 saw the race grow including disciplines such as an ITT. The big news though was doubling the event to include Women's Racing.

Including young women in the 3 day event was always part of the plan. There are few opportunities for young riders to show there amazing talent on bikes in stages and fewer still for women. It makes us very proud to see the race come together and see the stars of tomorrow give it their all.
Our huge thanks goes to the dedicated team at Bristol Cycling Development Squad to bring such an important event to UK roads.
