Who’s Team Alpecin?

Team Alpecin takes new members each year.

Team Alpecin is an amateur team with access to the same equipment and coaching as the pros. It showcases the progress cyclists can make with a structured training plan, expert coaching and the best equipment.

Nick Mayer was part of the 2019 team and attended a team training camp, worked with a dedicated coach, had an indoor trainer plan and learned the benefits of using a power meter – he’s seen an increase of 40 watts in his power in just a few months.

Whether you’re a ‘seasoned’ or ‘weathered’ cyclist who wants to see how the pros do things, or a budding racer looking for the perfect career launchpad, this prize is unmissable.

What’s on offer?

As a member of Team Alpecin, you’ll receive individual tailored training, a professional bike fit, training camps and cycling workshops, as well as free entry to several sportives and an unforgettable race weekend at one of the world’s biggest cycling events.

If that’s not enough, you’ll also become the proud owner of a high-end Canyon road bike (exact model TBC), as well as all the race kit, shoes, accessories and equipment you could possibly need.

You’ll gain a team and friends for life.

Plus, you’ll get to meet some amazing people. “Teammates have become friends for life,” Nick says of his experience, “and all while having awesome photographers capture these priceless memories.”

Another 2019 team rider, Marie-Louise Kertzman, says she’s gained a lot from her time on the team this year: “endurance, knowledge, confidence, friends and technical skills – all greater than I could possibly have imagined this time one year ago.”
