We are really excited to welcome Harrison Wood to our 2020 Academy roster. The 19-year old British rider will join our squad after riding this past season for France’s A.V.C Aix-en-Provance. “I am super excited to be joining SEG Racing Academy. This is such an incredible opportunity for me to improve on and off the bike and one that I am going to grab with both hands” highlights Wood.
The British climber showed a focused mindset when as a first year U23 he moved to France to ride in one of the most consolidated amateur programs in the country. After a long period of being in contact with the Academy management, some really promising results in our recruitment testing protocol by INSCYD and analyzing his training history through TrainingPeaks’s WKO 5, we knew that we are dealing with a very talented rider. “I am very excited to be part of the Academy in the coming years and I am really looking forward to the support and advice of everyone involved in the team. I want to develop myself as a climber, but I do not want to forget all other aspects”.
The high-quality racing program that the Academy puts across and takes riders all-around Europe to the biggest U23 races in the calendar, alongside the fact to work with a highly qualified Performance Staff were two of the main factors that attracted the British rider. “I am really looking forward to racing the biggest U23 races, especially races like Ronde de l’Isard and Giro d’Italia U23 are two that I really want to do eventually. In my opinion, this is the best place for a young cyclist to develop. With specific training plans from expert coaches and advise from top Sports Directors before and after the races, it will help me to develop at a fast pace”.
