Matrix Pro Cycling at their 2015 launch
TWC headed to Stoke on Trent yesterday to catch all the action from the Matrix Fitness Pro Cycling Team launch. From the girls, the kit, to the bikes, we made sure to bring you an exclusive look at what went down!
[related_articles] It's a young team made up of eleven riders, with the oldest being just 24. There's a very close-knit bond behind the girls which was clear to see straight from the start and we can't wait to follow them throughout their first year as a team together.
Keep an eye on the site for exclusive interviews and videos with the riders but for now take a look at our snaps from the launch...

Team manager Stefan Wyman and Trek's media guru, Chris Garrison talk about the Trek bikes the girls will be racing throughout the season.

The girls get some invaluable advice from Jensie AKA the one and only Jens Voigt: "enjoy your riding, embrace it".

We LOVE the tasteful colour and design of the girls kit.
Elinor Barker talks exclusively to TWC about her move to Matrix and the love for her new team and all the girls.
Trott talks about her custom made bike for the team. She's notorious for customised cycling gear, check out her Trotty shoes and glam race nails if you haven't already!
