Ciclo Team Racing is a first-of-its-kind initiative in the sport of Indian Cycling. It is backed by Track and Trail, Ridley Bicycles and 2GO Activewear. The team’s core rider and mentor – Naveen John – won two golds in the Men’s Elite Individual Time Trial (ITT), as well as the Men’s Elite Road Race (RR) at the 22nd National Road Cycling Championships.
All 4 team riders from Ciclo Team Racing won individual medals at the recently concluded 22nd Indian National Road Cycling Championships held in Jamkhandi, Karnataka. The National Championships crowns the top elite cyclists in the India annually, and the winners earn the title of “National Champ” in the sport.
“I’m very excited to nail the “double” at the National Championships, but I’m beyond excited about the opportunity it has opened up to train with one of the best professional teams in the sport – the Lotto Soudal team. Belgium is the cultural heartland of bike racing, and to be supported by Ridley bikes – a bicycle company with Belgian DNA – to take both my National titles on them, has been awesome”, said Naveen.
Post his exceptional performance at the recently concluded Nationals, Naveen has also been invited by Ridley Bicycles to Europe to train with the Lotto Soudal team in the coming months.
