On Christmas Eve whilst Santa was prepping his sleigh, The 5th Floor announced some fantastic news. The addition of a women’s cycling team to their London based line up.
“It’s been a long time coming, but we’re very excited to finally welcome Sophie, Adeline, Aoife (pronounced Ee-fah – it’s Irish), Petra and Clare to The 5th Floor London team. Headed up by good 5th friend Sophie Edmondson, the girls will be riding with us, competing in pretty much all disciplines and drinking plenty of coffee. 2016 is gonna be BIG!
The women’s team for 2016 includes five London-based riders. Right now everyone’s on the same page: getting in some winter miles ready for racing to kick up properly in the spring and also looking forward to some adventures when the summer sun finally rolls around.
After overlapping with the guys on the London racing circuit, eating pizzas and drinking beers together, joining forces with 5th was a natural move.” For more information and photography from Giles Smith, click here.
