The OUCC Road Squad is the high performance cycling programme at Oxford University in the United Kingdom.Â The squad represents Oxford at the highest level of collegiate cycling in the UK.Â Each year, the squadâ€™s objectives are to win the Varsity Match against Cambridge University and to place as high as possible across all BUCS rankings.Â The squad also competes in local and national British Cycling races, as well as international events in Europe and beyond.
The squad is recruited and developed from both undergraduates and graduates at the University, spanning the breadth of cycling experience, courses and colleges. All members balance theÂ commitments of training with the academic pressure of full time courses.
OUCC would like to hear from anyone at Oxford, or thinking of applying, who has an interest in competitive cycling and wants to train at the highest level.Â Male athletes are encouraged to contact the Menâ€™s Road Captain (Matt Kerin), and female athletes are encouraged to contact the Womenâ€™s Road Captain (Liv Withers).
Note: The 2016-2017 road season begins on Sunday Sept. 26th, 2016 with a pre-term camp based in Oxford.Â All athletes are expected to arrive fit.
