Having worked with Wilier over the last few years with our hugely successful Triathlon team, last year we knocked our heads together over a very special project – to form a dedicated team for the Track…
The TORQ Track team is 4-strong and lead by Janet Birkmyre, a rider with an extremely impressive record in track racing at elite level (these pictures are of her new 2016 bike). Janet had very specific requirements for what was needed for a professional-level track frame and each of the frames was produced to the exact size and geometry required by the individual riders.
Because the frames were hand made in Italy, Wilier were able to produce bespoke designs that specifically fulfilled Janet’s requirements. The team were, to say the least, extremely happy with the new frames, but their results tell the full story. Every member of the team had national level wins, but Janet was the most successful rider on the team; her victories for the season included:
• World Masters Track Championships – Five Titles
• National Masters Track Championships – Four Titles
• Elite National Series Winner – Three wins across the series & never off the podium
• Elite National Derny Champion
As a reward for such an amazing season, Janet will be riding this new frameset for the coming season. Once again, it has been custom designed for Janet complete with World Championship & British Cycling Championship bands.
Hopefully, the team can repeat the fantastic achievements of last year; they have certainly set themselves a very high bar! Together with the TORQ Triathlon Team, TORQ MTB Team and TORQ Running Team, the TORQ Track Team have already begun their 2016 campaign and the results have already started to flood in.
