Episode #37 – The Art of Building a Cycling Team with Henoch Getz of Cyclewise Coaching

Cycling teams are not as integrated into racing for semi-pro riding, opposed to the PRO peloton, but with the increase in racing cyclists over the past 5 years, more riders are turning to teams for a PRO racing experience. Henoch and I talk cycling team logistics, dynamics, sponsorships, benefits and more. We also talk about how to get on a team, and how not to be a dick.[buzzsprout episode=’83856′ player=’true’]

They’re a big part of the pro peloton, but not always the first thing you think about when it comes to your own cycling. I personally don’t have a lot of experience with running and organising a team so I got Hencoh Getz from Cyclewise coaching on the show to discuss the ins and outs of cycling teams.

Find out the answers to the following questions:

  • What’s the usual organisation or structure of these teams?
  • Why join a team?
  • Do you really need a team? 
  • Positives of being on a team?
  • Negatives of being on a team?
  • Starting a team
  • Sponsorship
  • What is the minimum sponsorship needed?
  • How do you approach companies?
  • How to you get on a team?
  • How do you fit in?
  • What makes a bad teammate?
