About Zappi Youth Racing

Zappi Youth Racing is a unique set up for riders aged 6 -18 years with strong links to Junior and U-23 teams that race in UK and Europe.

We aim to offer a pathway for young riders from the playground to the podium. We provide race training, coaching and support for races, and a whole range of fun activities around riding bikes fast! As our founder Flavio Zappi says: “Our aim is to engage with the kids and teach them the basics but moreover, to fuel their passion and love for racing. This is our commitment to the future!”

In 2015 Zappi Racing had three British Schools Cycling Association national champions and two more top four, putting the club in the top position. Whether you want to race to win or for just for fun we hope to develop a life-long love for cycling and to help riders to build their fitness and confidence on a bike.

We take the safety and wellbeing of our young riders seriously. Cycling has inherent dangers but we seek to mitigate risk wherever possible and much of our training is carried out away from the roads. We are a British Cycling Go-Ride club with Club Mark accreditation, and affiliated to the British Schools Cycling Association. Our successes were recognized in 2014 when we won the BBC Oxford Sports Club of the Year Award.
