Primal Europe also have a development club called RuTrainingToday CC, where promising youngsters can cut their teeth in the racing scene, whilst those who just want to ride their bikes can do so.
The team names are yet to be released, but they will of course be easily recognisable with their trade mark ‘Go Faster’ stripes! The Tour Series is a great opportunity for the whole team to compete at the next level, but also provides a platform to show themselves off to their sponsors.
