A new elite women’s racing team based in the north of England is set to debut next season – and they’re looking for riders who believe they have what it takes to join them.
Planet X – Northside will have three teams next year: its men’s (who hope to register as a Continental team), a junior national set-up and an elite women’s racing team.

The women’s team will be targeting the UK’s biggest races: the Elite National Road Series, Matrix Fitness GP Series, National Championships, Women’s Tour de Yorkshire and RideLondon Classique. The team will also be seeking invites to European tours.
To get the team up and running, they are now inviting applicants to come and ride for them. The team will be based primarily in the north-east but welcome riders from across the country.
Women must be racing at an elite level and in turn will receive support from sponsors, including Planet X.
Riders interested in becoming involved in the team or finding out more should contact Tony McDonagh on email@example.com.
