Jessica Finney Cycle Team OnForm Race Face

Jessica Finney joins in 2018 following impressive guest appearances this year, winning a round of the team series & finishing 4th in the recent super crit despite crashing with only a couple of laps to the finish, will join the team in 2018

Jess has just graduated from Portsmouth studying sports science. In her spare time she has always been active in sport. However, this year has been her first year that she has spent more time just concentrating on cycling.

Through her local club she has been introduced to the racing scene, only competing in her first race early this year. Jess has progressed quickly from racing locally to competing at national level

Jess said

“Im very excited to gain an opportunity to ride for team on form in 2018. I have always been very competitive and from an early age was inspired by the Olympics and track cycling. I am therefore really excited for next year to be able to focus on cycling and win races. My dream is to race at the biggest races in the world and to become a professional cyclist”

Team principle Simon said

“I have been following Jess’s progress closely through out the season and watched her finish 2nd in a round of the team series, such good rides without team mates & very little experience made my decision to offer Jess a couple of guest spots simple, it was an ideal opportunity to see how she fitted into our structure & for Jess to experience how we race with confidence but most of all supporting each other”

“As with all our current riders & new, we really look forward to supporting Jess towards achieving more through the 2018 season, I’m sure 2018 is going to be a good year for her”

Writtle Partnership with Team OnForm produces fantastic wins

Writtle partnership Cycle Team OnForm at the Lincoln Grandprix

This press release appeared on Writtle University College  in September 2017 

The partnership between Writtle University College and Team OnForm has produced fantastic results in its first six months with a stack of high-profile wins.

The cycling academy – the first of its kind in the UK – was officially launched in March and enables Cycling Performance degree students to participate in organised cycling races and events, whilst receiving the support and guidance of industry experts as they continue their educational journey.

Team OnForm riders, some of whom are students at the University College, have reached five national championships, won more than 65 races and have stepped up to the podiums more than 85 times.

The team were first overall team in the National Women’s Team Series, third overall team in the British Cycling Women’s Road Series team standings, and fifth team overall in the Tour Series Matrix Grand Prix Series team standings. OnForm won the first team overall in the three days of Bedford and was first team in the UCI Tour of Cambridge/Gran Fondo Chrono Team Time Trial.

Mark Walker, Course Leader for the Foundation Degree in Cycling Performance, said:

“This partnership has already proved to be an incredibly successful journey. Such has been the success of Team OnForm that riders were winning races from the very start of the season, but, to our surprise, those early wins have been followed by bigger and more prestigious performances.

“Needless to say, there is even more of this journey to come with some further big announcements about races and additional sponsors to follow. Our progress so far has well exceeded expectations!”

Simon Howes, Team Principal, said:

“Our results show that our partnership with Writtle University College has been a huge success. There are many stories of our riders improving week after week – and growing in confidence over this season; something everybody in the team is very proud of.

Oli Smee is the perfect example. Through Writtle and Team OnForm he was able to experience racing in France. To see him then come back to the UK and win a race encompasses the Team OnForm ethos – helping riders progress and develop.

We are all very much looking forward to our continued partnership next year and many more years after that. The partnership is a great fit for both the team and University College.”

As well as giving students the opportunity to pursue their racing ambitions, the course is specially-designed to enable them to gain experience in a raft of cycling-related careers, including event management and coaching.
