Stunt team 'The Clan' begin new search for female star
For the second year running The Clan, Scotland’s Cycle Stunt Team, are on the hunt for a female cyclist to join their team this summer.
The winner will join the crew throughout May and June on a tour of schools and events across Scotland. Since they began in 2008 they’ve always featured female stunt cyclists and this is the second year they’ve used a competition to find the next big talent.
Changes this year include a huge prize increase to £5,000 and the opportunity for all entrants to attend a weekend camp where they can practice together on custom-built ramps in a foam pit.
Last year professional mountain biker Katy Curd was joint winner, joining The Clan for a couple of weeks but due to racing commitments this year she won’t be joining up with them again.

Clan manager Iain Withers said: “It’s important to have diversity in our team and especially to ensure a female rider is present to show all the girls out there riding is not just for boys. It’s a great opportunity for female riders out there to gain confidence and learn tricks. If we find someone as talented as last year’s winners, we’ll be stoked!”
To enter the competition you must be female, a BMX or mountain bike rider and available in May and/or June 2012. On top of the £5,000 fee, the prize includes training and accommodation. Contact Clan manager Iain Withers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
