Cycling New Zealand Athlete Development Opportunities
 
The following list provides an overview of the type of development opportunities Cycling New Zealand delivers / has teams participating in each year.  The schedule includes dates and deadlines for the current year where relevant, and, while specific dates will vary year to year, the overall schedule will likely remain the same. 
 
Unique Opportunity
Cycling New Zealand is looking for five motivated U23 Men Road riders for a team to be based in Italy for a once-in-a-lifetime youth development opportunity. The team will be based in Cecina, Tuscany, beginning in early April with the first group, then a second through to September. The dates are still to be confirmed.
 
This great opportunity came about through the forward thinking of Bruce Biddle and conversations with Cycling New Zealand late 2016. The programme will be led by Fabrizio Gini, who has enabled the infrastructure and support to make this possible. They are beginning to put in place a great race programme which begins on April 25th with an international race in Rome and will include an invitation to the U23 Giro. 
 
To be part of this great initiative you will need:
The passion and desire to make the most of the opportunity
Travel to and from Italy, most internal costs to be covered by the organisation
To complete the expression of interest form and provide a bio of your history including why you want to be part of this venture
 
We will get key additional info to you as it’s finalised.
 
Return expression of interest to Graeme Hunn Graeme.hunn@cyclingnewzealand.nz
