APPLICATIONS ARE OPEN!

+++ Scholarship opening for riders +++

Be part of the team!

Cycling in general and professional women‘s cycling, in particular, is not accessible for many women around the world. Our goal is to make the sport diverse and inclusive by developing and fostering promising talents that currently have no or only limited access to cycling.

To do so, we offer the unique opportunity of eight scholarships for CANYON//SRAM Racing’s newly founded UCI Continental Team in 2022.

Scholarships include supervised training, individual coaching, mentorship, a structured racing program, and stagiaire opportunities at CANYON//SRAM Racing. Off the bike, riders will enter the team’s Diversity and Inclusion program as well as benefit from an infrastructure formed to support top performance. 

Rider recruitment focus will be on, but not limited to, Africa, Asia, and South America. 

We are an equal opportunity team and this position is open to all women that meet the UCI sporting policies and rules for female athlete participation.

Development takes time and commitment. The length of the contract is one or two years. 

Do you meet the following criteria?
  • You are an ambitious bike racer who is willing to work hard to make it to the top in women’s professional cycling.
  • You qualify for the UCI women’s elite category in 2022 (you were born in 2003 or earlier).
  • You are eager to learn and grow and contribute to the success of the team.
  • You have a competitive history in sport, preferably in any cycling discipline.  
  • You are willing to have a medical check.
  • You are willing to live away from home, and to be based in Europe for most of the year to train, race and travel with the team.
