Spirit Tifosi BSS cycling team
Formed in 2010 by Team principal Russell Rowles, the Spirit Tifosi BSS cycling team is now firmly established in the UK scene as the premier Elite Amateur team, with over 200 wins and 500 podiums to date. Ride Revolution has been the official coaching partner of the team since our inception in early 2019 and before this head coach Jake has coached members of the team since 2015.
The teams key focus has always been on developing and mentoring riders in the sport of cycling, with the aim of providing a steppingstone to the upper echelons. The team provides the platform for riders to compete in the UK’s biggest races, including the current HSBC UK Elite Road Series and Elite circuit series, with full support from a dedicated team of volunteer staff. They also receive regular invites to races in the UCI Europe, Asia and African Tours and consistently achieve top 10 results – no mean feet for a team made up of predominantly full-time workers racing against full time professionals. The team has so far helped several riders move on to continental level teams, with the ultimate aim to eventually help a rider up to the World Tour.
As a Brand Ambassador for their extensive list of sponsors, Spirit Bontrager BSS Rotor continues to surpass their targets year on year, all whilst operating on a shoestring budget in comparison some of the competition. Strong team work ethic has always been the basis of Rowles’ ethos, with the emphasis always placed on team bonding and fun first and foremost.
As well as coaching a large percentage of the team, Ride Revolution has two riders on the team’s current roster. Coaches Charlie and Jake have represented the team since 2017 and 2015 respectively, achieving over 50 wins between them during this time.
