ADDFORM – Vive le Velo is a 2023 British racing team setup for riders to have a great group to train and race with, hopefully getting some results in the process!
Adam Duggleby and the Vive le Velo shop in North Ferriby in East Yorkshire partnered to bring Adam’s coached riders and the current team members together to form what is now ADDFORM – Vive le Velo. Last years edition of the team gained the National 10 Mile TT team prize!
ADDFORM – Vive le Velo is sponsored by two great companies that really love cycling, Principle Networks and KS Services. They have many employees that ride regularly and even though cycling isn’t their business, they were excited to get involved in sponsoring a local cycling team from Yorkshire.
ADDFORM couldn’t have supported the team riders without their help, so big thanks to both of them!
If you want to be part of the team, sponsor the team or be coached by ADDFORM then get in touch…..
