I'm looking to get into a racing team next year preferably a top club or elite team. What I actually want to know is should I approach the team I'd like to ride for or should I get the results needed and wait for them to approach me ?
Ride and the teams will contact you if they're interested.
Usually you need to beat them. That usually gets their attention. It worked for a local just-turned-Senior racer around here. Last year he won two races locally, solo each time, beating two guys from Jelly Belly while winning (as well as other pro teams in the bigger of the two races). This year he's racing for Jelly Belly. They went looking for him, not the other way around.
