For the second year running ‘The Clan’, Scotland’s Cycle Stunt Team, are on the hunt for a female stunt cyclist to join their team this summer.
This year there is a huge £5,000 up for grabs for the lucky rider and the chance to join the team for May and June, touring schools and events across Scotland.
The Clan are unique in the UK in the fact that every year since they began in 2008, they have always featured female stunt cyclists. This is the second year they have used a competition format to find the hottest talent in the female riding scene. For 2012 they are also putting on a women’s weekend for all competition entrants who can train and practice together on custom-built ramps and in a foam pit designed to allow riders to crash without hurting themselves.
The shows are designed to prove that cycling is an exciting activity that everyone can have fun doing. It’s important to have diversity in the teams and especially to ensure a female rider is present to show all the girls out there riding is not just for boys. This year as well they are inviting all of the entrants to come and train with there team and take advantage of crash mats, a foam pit and our custom-built ramps. It’s a great opportunity for female riders out there to gain confidence and learn tricks. Last year professional mountain bike racer Katy Curd was joint winner of the all-female competition.
To enter the competition you must be female, a BMX or Mountain Bike rider and available in May and/or June 2012 (the competition win may be split between two riders).
The prize includes training, accommodation and food on tour and a £5000 fee. For an entry form, please contact Clan manager Iain Withers at firstname.lastname@example.org
