La Squadra takes on the Surrey Hills
On a sunny day in September La Squadra were joined by INEOS Grenadier riders and Alex Richardson from Team St Piran at The Queen’s Stage in the picturesque location of Effingham played host to a special ride out.
Everyone had a fantastic time and we have a few highlights for you to see.
The ride was followed by a Q&A hosted by Brian Smith and Tattinger Champagne presented their regular rider of the day awards.

The Cheshire Ride
The Churchill Tree in Alderley Park was a perfect venue for our La Squadra Cheshire ride on April 23rd 2022. The route was well designed with the hills up front and endless quiet country lanes making the ride a joy. We had 3 groups on the road with Pinarello Ambassadors Russ Downing and Grace Garner moving through the groups allowing our owners to ride with them.
The halfway coffee stop at the Black Swan Pub was brilliant and gave the opportunity for our new partners Cycle Espresso Rocket Coffee Milano to fuel us for the ride back.
Back at the Churchill Tree and each group home safely without incident we were able to award a ‘rider of the day’ from each group nominated by the ride leaders. Our other new partner Taittinger Champagne were able to present a bottle of bubbles to each winner.
After a pasta lunch we had a fun Q&A with Russ and Grace giving insights into their respective cycling careers and thoughts on the current scene.
On leaving each member was given a goodie bag with merchandise from Team INEOS Grenadiers and Enervit energy products – our partners.
I loved it – a superb day, really enjoyed it, lovely ride and a great group of people. Will definitely be a regular for your rides

Events & Rides
La Squadra Launch event with Team Ineos Grenadiers, Hambleden, Chiltern Hills
La Squadra was officially launched with a social ride starting from the Stag & Huntsman Inn in Hambleden nr Marlow. A 60km loop took us through the beautiful Chilterns with a few challenging climbs before a coffee stop at King William IV Inn at Hailey. From there it was downhill back to Henley and along the river Thames to Hambleden. Over a pasta lunch we heard from Oli Cookson, Team Ineos Director Sportif about what goes on behind the scenes at a World Tour race. Fascinating insights which capped a perfect start for La Squadra.
