In 2022, the Garcia Zeru became Singapore's first UCI approved racing bike frame. A feat we hold great pride in.
We are also honored to have on board Mr Lim Seng, who is the former Corporate CTO rep APAC for Airbus Group and Singapore's defence scientist as our R&D Advisor. Mr Lim is also the founder of IN.Genius, who initiated the First Singaporean to Space project.
After coming in 4th in the National Individual Time Trial competition, Yanda was selected to join the National Youth Development Squad, but he decided to drop out after two sessions. It broke many hearts that it did not work out.
An idea was soon conceived to raise sponsorship so that raw talents would not be consigned to the wayside. The thought of supporting one boy in that morning grew rapidly amongst the few seniors.
By evening, the dream became something more audacious - the forming of an Association, with a proper support structure.
Cycling is life-changing. Within the community, life-long relationships are forged. Taking care of each other on the road spills over into life off it.
For the youths, it is an opportunity that goes beyond the pedal. They learn life skills such as teamwork, punctuality, communication, leadership, networking and taking personal responsibilities.
We exist to fill this gap.
It is imperative that our cyclists operate under the safety of their physical limits. We pay attention to avoiding injuries due to a lack of strengthening and over-training.
To sustain long endurance rides, the calculation of how much carbs and other nutritions come into play, including rest and recovery regimes.
At the RNE bike shop, the home of Garcia, riders are trained on the job and undertake actual servicing work, including wheel building.
Cycling involves man and machine integration in a profound way. We conduct workshops and discussions to deepen knowledge and understanding around the equipment and every key part of the machinary - the bike.
Team Garcia collaborates and consults with national cyclists and podium winners who are also professional physiotherapists and sport trainers. Using ride data from sensors, we are able to track progress and Key Performance Indexes.
These data allow our analyst to derive insights about each and every rider. Advisories are then given on their training parameters and nutritional requirements.
To be on time is to be late. Showing up early for all training is your first commitment in GTT. This is how we know that we can entrust you with more responsibilities within the team as you progress.
Our first principle is to identity raw talents and provide you with a conducive platform to grow in. We take joy in seeing your hardwork and consistency yield from strength to strength.
Most new riders start in the Garcia Test Team B (GTT-B). Your overall performace would then determine if you would be elevated into GTT-A, which is the first race team.
