What began as a solo effort for Founder Robert Bateman has grown into a team that will collectively ride over one million kilometers during training and racing this year. Going from one rider in 2012 to 75 this year reveals our Teams soaring popularity. The team has not only grown in size but the number of top finishes earned is impressive for such a relatively new team. Last year members of Bateman’s Racing team stepped onto 80 podiums in over 100 races across a number of cycling disciplines.
The 2018 team will have 25 new racers joining 50 returning. 2017 returnees include Nicola Kidd (2017 Billy Haw Recipient - team's highest award), veteran Ryan Rutherford (current Ontario Cyclocross Provincial Champion) and Gus De Groote (Winner of the 2017 Ontario Cycling Association’s Most Sportsmanlike Junior Cyclist).
The team will race on mountain, road and cyclocross bikes and compete in everything from weekly local races to Ontario Cycling Association race series and championships.
