Speaking about the Ciclo Academy, Mr. Ashish R Thadani who conceptualized Ciclo Café and is CEO, TI Absolute Concepts said, “Getting recognition in your country is an achievement, however you see your true standing when you compete on an international level. Ciclo Academy was formed with a goal to go #BeyondNationalChampions so each one can extensively work towards achieving higher targets. Naveen and Arvind have been the pillars of this initiative and have enriched the lives of the young participants with their learnings and years of international experience. It was also particularly gratifying to see the participants applying their learnings at the BBCh and emerging winners! It is a testimony to the fact that a little bit of aid and support can indeed help our young cyclists achieve laurels.”

“Ciclo Academy is a brilliant initiative focused on grass route level to inspire India’s young cycling talent. I’m happy to see this kind of focused technique learning which was missing earlier when we use to train. This platform gives us an opportunity to share our international competitive experience with these young riders. At this camp, we focused on identifying young talent and sharing advanced technical knowledge. The training included power tests, bike handling skills, upskilling riders with bike drills and much more. We are glad that everyone left being inspired to work towards their goal in a more objective manner.” said, Naveen John.

Provide a unique platform for young aspiring cyclists and cyclists from the community to interact with the best riders from Country.
Outcome – everyone left a little more inspired to work towards their goal in a more objective manner and working towards that.

Testimonials by participant:
Vinod Pillai, “A camp focused on how to plan one’s season and training with power. Ciclo athletes shared their practice knowledge more than theory, things which you can easily incorporate in your training and up your fitness. We did some power tests and analyzed it to know where we stand and how to take it forward. We also did drills to improve bike handling, cornering etc. For a beginner this camp gave immense knowledge. It wasn't just about gaining knowledge but practically doing stuff which made this camp even more interesting”.

Adarsh Saxena, “It was a wonderful experience and a fantastic bunch of cyclists at the camp. You become strong in cycling when you train and interact with strong cyclists and the camp offered this in so many ways. The way the camp was structured was a perfect balance of on the bike training and off the bike learning and interaction. Overall it was a great weekend and something that was organised in a fantastic and professional manner. Kudos and eagerly looking forward to more such camps and trips”.
