Swift Racing needs you!


Britain’s top professional women’s team invites supporters to own a share of their success via an innovative Internet venture.


Swift Racing was the UK’s first professional women’s cycling team in 2006 and has grown every year since, developing and showcasing the best talent in women’s international cycling. Our palmares speaks for itself: European Track Champion, National Cyclo-Cross Champion, National U23 Road Race Champion, National Criterium Champion, World Cup Medals. 2008 has been our most successful year to date, but we need your help to continue winning.


Like most professional cycling teams, money is limited and we fund our racing season from the goodwill and financial support of our sponsors. It may surprise you to learn that to this point in time, the riders and staff in our team are unpaid and they do what they do for the love of their sport rather than to make big money. Whereas even footballers in the lower leagues earn tens of thousands of pounds every week, Swift Racing contains cyclists ranked in the top five of the world who ride and race week-in, week-out, for no financial return.


With the credit-crunch talked about in the news and in the papers every day, Swift Racing is also feeling the pinch. Our title sponsor, Swift Motorhomes, to whom we owe a great deal of gratitude and support, have decided that because of the economic climate they cannot sponsor us next year. In simple terms, this means that there is a risk we may not be able to race next season and the team will have to fold.
