Equipment:

This season the girls will be competing and training on Planet X bikes.  For road race events and training rides, they have their pick of the new EC-130-E Aero Road bike or the handbuilt RT-90. The EC-130-E has quickly established itself a reputation for being blisteringly quick so it's a natural choice for fast road events. For TT events, Planet X has provided the Exocet2 TT bike, it offers proven aero performance that will help the girls to ride to new PB's and podium positions.

On the track, the girls will be riding the new Koichi San, named in honour of the legendary Japanese track rider and 10 times Track Sprint World Champion Koichi Nakano. This brand new track machine has been developed to excel in the tough multi-rider events, it's perfect for Keirin, Madison and Omnium events and absolutely no slouch in a sprint. We look forward to seeing the girls dominate on the track and road this season aboard their new Planet X bikes.



So far this season the team has already secured victories on the track, Malgorzata took top slot at the Ghent 6 Day track event, winning the Omnium, with 5 out of 6 events. She followed this up with a clean sweep at London Revolution and most recently a silver medal for the Individual Pursuit at the World Championships. The other girls are working towards their later season girls with Edita already having a good early season showing, taking sixth place in the points race at the Hong Kong World Cup Points race.
