The Cycling Ireland Offroad Development Squad is a team of talented young riders who aspire to become members of the Cycling Ireland Hight Performance Squad.
There are two aspects to Cycling Ireland Programmes, Development and High Performance. Development is handled through the Off-road Commission, by volunteers, riders etc.  High Performance is handled by the High Performance Director, his staff and lead volunteers.

Riders in the Development Squad will receive coaching sessions, training days, physiological testing and participate in domestic races as a team, wearing their squad kit.
