Ireland’s World No. 1 Joins GET Racing
Kelvin Batey, Ireland’s World Number 1 will be riding for GET Racing for the up coming 2014 season. As well as some heavy hitting BMX brands on board such as Prophecy BMX the team are looking pretty impressive to say the least. Along side Kelvin is his old team mate from Route 55, Dom Skidmore who is moving up to the Championship / Elite class. Making a return to racing is Emily Batey in the Championship Women. Expect GET Racing to rack up some serious points in the 2014 British Series.
See the press Release from GET Racing below and don’t forget that Kelvin is back in Ireland at the end of the month for more coaching sessions.
After making their debut in the 2013 UK race season, GET Racing is pleased to announce their new team roster and sponsors for 2014.
With big long term plans for the next few years GET Racing have put together a group of riders and sponsors that will develop together under the guidance of Team Manager Scott Evans who’s passion and dedication to the team will keep driving things forward.
The team riders range from the 6 and under class all the way through to the Elite with 4 girls adding a bit of girl power to what is a very strong squad. With National, British and World Champions making up GET Racing for 2014 there is a good mix of ages, characters and abilities in which riders will be able to reach their full potential.

As team coach and current Masters World Champion Kelvin Batey moves onto the team after 5 years of managing the Route 55 team. ” There is some regret in having to let the Route 55 squad go as we have had some very memorable and successful times but now with GET Racing I am looking forward to seeing where we can take these riders in their careers and hopefully help them get the results their potential is showing at the moment. It’s a very tight group of riders and parents so I’m already excited about racing in 2014. We are lucky to have such good support from the team sponsors and having rode the new Prophecy frame for the last few weeks I’m already seeing some improvements in different areas of my riding.”
Riding alongside Kelvin in the showcase UK class is his training partner Dominic Skidmore #555 who has made the move up to the Championship/Elite after a few successful years in the 17-29 category. ” With a few years of experience in the 17-29 class I think it’s time to take my riding to the next level and having enjoyed riding the pro sections for the last few years I feel I’m ready to compete with some of the best riders in the country. I’ve been on the team for almost half a year now and with some great support I hope I can also do well at the Europeans and Worlds next year.”
The team are proud to be supported by some great companies and thank them for this support for 2014 and beyond.
