Each year, the Auto-Cycle Union (ACU) supports the formation of Team GB Trophy Teams to participate in the prestigious ISDE event. ISDE Team GB is managed by former competitors – many of whom have previously appeared on the ISDE podium – who monitor the performance of Britain’s elite riders and invite the very best to represent their nation. Whilst Team GB is an amateur team, many of its individual members are professional riders. It's a great place to watch some of the sport's rising stars, who are definitely in the ascendant!

The ISDE is a famously open, accessible event which invites entries from anyone who has the necessary skill, stamina, and determination to face the challenge. Team GB’s World Trophy Teams are joined by a contingent of British club riders who compete for team awards and individual honours.
