A Stellar Year

As the TORQ Performance Mountain Bike Team rounds out the end of 2016 (its 12th consecutive season racing on the UK domestic circuit), we take a look back over what the team’s athletes have achieved. 


Despite some injuries, the team have put in some exceptional performances. The team have always remained at the sharp end of the UK Elite field in XC and have put in Gold medal performances at some of the UK’s biggest endurance events. The athletes have raced and represented the team and sponsors at all of the UK’s major XC and Marathon Mountain Bike events. This winter, as part of 2017’s preparations, the team have turned their attention to racing at both National and Regional Cyclo Cross events. We look ahead to another successful 2017 season.
