JOIN A TEAM
The 2Wheel Academy has been developed to make it easier for kids to make cycling, in particular mountain biking, their first sport in the same way cricket, soccer or football can be.
The 2Wheel Academy will provide the structure for junior riders across Australia to be part of a local team. As a joint initiative with the Torq Merida Mountain Bike Team, the Academy will be based around the ideals and philosophies that have made this team the most successful in Australia over the last 10 years.
The 2Wheel Academy is a fantastic framework to help kids develop as mountain bike riders, while providing skills that will help them achieve – both on and off the bike – and provide a pathway for the development of young people into great adults.
The 2Wheel Academy wants to help young people to learn the keys to success and turn these into habits.

These teams are for riders who just want to ride, learn some skills and have heaps of fun with some other great kids. They ride for skills, fun and to make great mates. Development Team riders will race their local club races and lots of other events but rather than race the field, these guys race themselves (and maybe their mates for bragging rights…).
These riders are bit more serious about racing. Your ultimate goal might not be the Olympics or World Cups but if you’re a more experienced rider who wants to race hard and be the best rider you can be, then a Race Squad might be more you thing. Race Squad riders will generally be or aiming to be competing at National Level events. Bike skills will still be a major focus but most Race Squad riders will be looking at specific performance training and even getting their own coach.
