REBECCA Rimmington has left Aprire/HSS Hire just a few weeks after joining the squad.

Rimmington only moved to Aprire earlier this season after she decided to leave IKON Mazda.

But the Padiham star admits the move did not work out and she has now moved on again.


Rimmington represented Aprire in the national championships earlier this month and is hopeful of competing at next week’s Ryedale Grand Prix as an individual rider.

Of the move Rimmington said: “It hadn’t really worked out at Aprire and so I have decided to move on.”

Rimmington finished 11th in the time trial at the national championships and admitted she was pleased with her performance despite falling just short of the top 10.

She said: “It was a good ride and a great course with a really high-quality field.

“Hopefully next year I can crack the top 10.”

Rimmington also praised the crowd who came out to support the riders in Lincoln.

“It was great to see so many people,” she added.

“The first time I took the climb the roar of the crowd just carried me up.”

Rimmington is also hoping to take part in Ride London next month.
