HUNT to partner with The British Continental
Domestic bike racing. It's not much of a secret how we feel about it here at HUNT.
At the pointy end of it all, we're thrilled to roll into our fifth season with Canyon dhb; a partnership that has gotten better with age, and been a huge influence on not just the HUNT brand, but so many of the people within it. As well as the expected fruits of supporting the strongest UCI team in the British domestic scene, such as product development and improvement, we've seen riders and staff become close friends grounded in a shared passion for racing.
Added to this, we're into our second year with Bianchi Dama, one of the strongest elite female teams in the UK with their sights set firmly on being a part of British Cycling's new Elite Development Team division. And even closer to home, we support some particularly sharp local riders in the form of the HUNT Race Team, competing all over the South East of England and getting their hands in the air with great frequency.
The British Continental capture everything we love about racing inside the UK, and we're absolutely thrilled to announce our support of the outfit for 2021. It has quickly become the home of news on racing on home soil, as well as looking at young British riders who have gone on to compete internationally.
It also provides a platform for riders and the wider cycling community to share their views and experiences. This year, for example, 9 riders will be keeping journals for The British Continental, documenting their journeys as bike racers during a season which hopefully sees a return to normality. Additionally, we'll be featuring guest posts here on the HUNT Journal from Denny Gray (Founder & Editor), offering a unique insight on HUNT's involvement with the domestic racing scene.
Speaking on the partnership, Denny outlines "HUNT's support will make the world of difference to The British Continental. For the first time, we can head into the new year knowing all our costs are covered and that we can keep doing what we love: providing the best content we can about British bike racing, teams and riders."
