Former elite cyclist and mentor to gold medal winning Olympians and Tour cyclists, Ricci Pascoe founded the Saint Piran professional cycling team 6 years ago. St Piran being the patron saint of Cornwall, their roots and heart is very much themed around Cornwall, but they now have a Continental team that allows them to compete with the big boys in races like The Tour of Britain.
I wanted to chat to Ricci about the origins of Saint Piran, why the Cornish roots are so important to this now national team, how they help cyclists from grass roots to pros and how he funds a team that doesn't want a single deep pocketed sponsor.
