Team announces roster and new sponsors for 2017

2017 season is already set to be an exciting season, with a smaller stronger squad of experienced riders mixing youth and talent. The team will be competing in Britain’s elite road series and Ireland’s An Post Ras; a gruelling 8 day stage race covering some of the islands toughest roads and mountains. This will be the teams third year competing in this event and we’re excited to add the talents of former U23 road champion Mike Cuming. Mike is the former Tour of Korea race winner. Most recently Mike had been racing professionally in Australia. He is looking to make a big impact in the the UK after racing overseas for a couple years.

Mike says –

“I’m really excited signing with Neon Velo for 2017. I think everyone involved with the team have been really enthusiastic and positive with me coming on board. I’m looking forward to a really busy and varied program of racing this year with a great bunch of people. It will be good!

The official team presentation is to be held at our sponsor store- ‘Giant St-Pauls’ in London on Thursday March 2nd at 5pm. The presentation will be incorporated in the ‘Bike and Wheels’ event. A great opportunity to come and meet the team and speak to a whole host of cycling experts in the industry.

We are pleased to announce our continued support from; Neon Velo, Giant- St Pauls, H2, Kitbrix, Pedros, Enzos, OTE, Big Bobble Hats and Oakley and would also like to welcome our new Sponsor; Verge Sports who are the official kit supplier to the team.
