TEAMS WE SUPPORT

VECTOR CYCLING RACE TEAM New to the South and Central UK racing scene, but filled with riding experience, the Vector Cycling Race team flies the Oxford flag across road racing, crit racing, cross country mountain biking and cyclocross. With the Oxford logo on the jersey, they are rapidly making a name for themselves locally with their results. To make them as fast as possible Oxford is supplying the team with Taya chains and Oxford bottles, winter gloves and bar tape.

CAMS TIFOSI

MOUNTAIN MANIA RACE TEAM

A unique all-British UCI registered women’s continental cycling team racing in the UK and Europe. Like all professional racing teams, has been badly affected by the cancellation of racing throughout the 2020 calendar due to the Coronavirus pandemic. However 2021 is looking far healthier and the team have a packed calendar of races both in the UK and in Europe

Sending it down the gnarly downhill tracks of the UK is the Oxford supported Mountain Mania Race Team. One of the stars of the team is Rich Simpson who with his Acros wheels and bars whizzes his way to regular victories and podiums in the Veteran Series. The team is also about inspiring people to race for the first time which is a value very much shared by Oxford.

TEAM ON FORM Oxford has been supporting Team OnForm for a couple of seasons, as they race up and down the UK. It is a team based around developing the best British cycling talent through the junior and under 23 categories. For the coming season Oxford will be supplying the riders with helmets from Kali Protectives and the now famous pink Oxford Premium Handlebar Tape.

ROBERT BEARD AND ZAC RAINBOW These guys spend more time riding their bikes in the air than on the ground. When you’re busy defying gravity, you need helmets you can trust will protect you when going full send goes wrong. It’s for this reason we support them with Kali Protectives lids. When finding the limit is the aim crashing hard is unfortunately part of the game.

CYCLE SHEFFIELD The team race at regional, national and international level, travelling to races across the UK and Europe. The team is made up of talented aspiring riders aged 18-25yrs and has seen the likes of Connor Swift (Arkea Samsic) pass through the ranks. Their mission is to help our riders develop and further their careers as athletes by providing a professional and nurturing team environment.
