Surface Design Racing was formed in 2016 by three like-minded road racers.
We are an amateur road bicycle racing team competing in a wide range of British Cycling, TLI and CTT events. We race mainly in the North West of England and in North Wales but often venture further afield to broaden our experience.
We were not able to race a complete calendar in our first season so we decided that we should use it as a formative one with a view to entering 2017 fully race prepared. With this goal in mind we undertook a full training and fitness programme whilst racing in selected events and entered into the search for sponsorship that is the lifeblood of any amateur team.
We are proud of our roots so we are keen to work with and promote local businesses and it was decided that we would use the name of our first ever sponsor as the team name. Surface Design was the first company to offer support and their corporate colours of black, grey and blue were adopted by SDR along with a big splash of pink! Within a very short period of time we were fortunate to attract the support of Appleton Hall Veterinary Clinic, Floorscan, Vaseco, SIS Security, Strike Fencing, Cliff Dickenson Ford, Edmundson Electrical and kelpalmer plans. With this financial clout behind us we were able to fund most of the team start-up requirements including high-end race kit from Bioracer through the team at Onimpex. We have also forged a strong partnership with Callum and his team at G&B Cycles in Northwich.
In everything we do we strive to be a team worthy of your support.
