Ashish R Thadani (CEO, TI Absolute Concepts) commenting on opening the registrations said, “Ciclo as a brand was launched with a vision to bring together members of the cycling community. At Ciclo each one is inspired to go beyond limits and build a stronger community for cyclist in India. Ciclo Academy is our effort to nurture young talent and expose them to cycling at an international level. Becoming a professional cyclist requires not just talent and an extraordinary amount of hard work on the part of the cyclist, but also requires a support system that empowers the cyclist with the best equipment, knowledge, coaching, training and racing opportunities”.

Ciclo Cafe along with 2GO will also be presenting scholarships (50% of the camp fees) for the Ciclo Academy training camp to deserving young cyclists to enable them to get a taste of world-class training and help them gain a competitive edge in racing at community/state/national-level in India.

The camp will include testing to speed among the best riders in the country, bike handling skills to improve your efficiency in a pack, bunch racing tactics, strength and mobility sessions, group interactions, and sharing as much accrued knowledge on getting to the top level in Indian cycling and beyond.” said, Naveen John.
