Kevin Tye, affectionately known in the team as El Jefe is an enigma. Four Masters' World TT Champ golds, two silvers and a bronze, crown a great palmares full of open event wins on scratch and even more as vet standard. Add to that multiple national titles the title Jefe makes total sense!

Andrew Meilak has a long racing history in road races as well as TTs. A heritage passed from his also legendary father. He has multiple national titles and is a bit of a distance specialist being the only team member that actually likes a 100TT! Dominant in Kent's veteran standard results he's still not far behind the county young guns.

Mark has a road racing history as a bit of a domestique having ridden for Arctic cycling team before racing with various incarnations of what is now VeloRefined Rule 5. His TT abilities have improved considerably and this has helped ensure multiple team wins as well as a healthy bank of top 3 results on scratch and wins on age standard in recent years.

Paul Smith has been racing for several years and joined VeloRefined Rule 5 Aerosmiths following a long stint with the famous Catford CC.

Paul like Mark is a consistent rider in the team supporting them to several team results each season as well as a number of his own vet standard results. Paul is also famous for riding Mt Teide with a 42 chainring!

Stuart has joined the team for 2022 and we are really excited about his capabilities and what he will add to the team in terms of firepower. This rider has some top tier results over the years and we know this will be his best year ever in the super blues! Last year saw some top 3 results and 2022 will certainly be rich in pickings individually and as a team consolidation.

The Team's success, is in part driven by our long standing associations with Tim Lawson for nutrition through Secret Training, and for technology through Simon Smart of Smart AeroTech and Drag2Zero. The Team also benefits from Simon's links with Endura who supply our custom TT suits and from 2019 our custom made training kit and TT helmets.

The Secret Training range of products is amongst the best available as used by the Tinkoff Team and by Mitchelton Scott to great effect! VeloRefined riders especially use the Stealth range of products to support their training, racing and active recovery.

Our association with Simon Smart has mainly developed through Kevin Tye's work with him to support aerodynamic gains in the wind-tunnel, especially for his highly successful World Champion title bids. Simon has unrivalled knowledge and experience as an aerodynamicist stemming from his F1 past and close involvement with the development of many of the top-end TT bikes, TT suits and equipment used today.


The latest weapon deployed by the team is the Endura Drag2Zero Aeroswitch TT helmet, which not only helps us go faster, but also ensures we have a clear view of the road ahead.
