In December 2015 the team had itsĀ first get-together, a youth hosteling weekend in Wales. For 2016 the boys are riding as Giant CC Halo Films and the girls, Liv CC Epic Coaching. Our backers, Giant UK have mens and womens brands and the teams will ride in their colours.

Our hosteling weekend started at Halo Films’ Gloucestershire base and headed off into the hills of the Brecon Beacons. With a few new riders it was great to have two days getting to know each other. It was the weekend of hurricane Desmond and getting across the moors on Saturday afternoon was epic and windy fun. Sunday morning saw a rainy ascent of the notorious Tumble climb near Abergavenny before heading back across the Severn Bridge.
