Meet Joe Laverick – U23 Pro Continental Cyclist

Joe bought my first road bike in March 2014, a Raleigh Revenio C1. I dabbled with some club TTs but his heart remained with football. Eventually, football faded away and cycling became HIS sport.

He climbed through the junior ranks, racing all across Europe.  Including becoming some what of a specialist in that distinctly unique British Passion – Time Trialing,  This led to him signing for Madison-Genesis, a huge move for 18-year-old me. After a year on arguably the biggest domestic British team, sponsorship fell through and he was left hunting for a new contract.

His search took him to France, Chambery to be specific.  Joe followed what would have been a ‘traditional route’, back in the 60’s and 70’s – yet one today very few UK professionals follow.  He is now plying his trade for Chambery CF, the AG2R La Mondiale development team. 

Joe has worked with some of the very best coaches in the sport on his rise through the ranks and supplements this with his own coaching knowledge, learning and enthusiasm
