TEAM NXTG Racing Next Generation in cycling 2021


It's all about the details!

The season is here! The ladies from NXTG Racing are ready to rumble. The first races are already in the books for 2021. 

This team is a development project for young and talented U23 female cyclists founded by Natasha and Servais Knaven. 

Supporting women's cycling from the basics is TEAM NXTG Racing's goal. A good foundation will ensure a broader top in global women's cycling in the future. Support to combine top sport and study in the best possible way so that a talent develops further in various areas. 

TEAM NXTG's mission is to keep cycling talent and to be an inspiration for other U23 projects. Supporting from the basics and to jump into the gaping gap, between the top of the world and riders who have just left the junior category.
