TRINITY Racing are delighted to announce its roster for the upcoming Tour of Britain (5-12th September). The British registered UCI Continental team will line up as follows:
– Christopher BLEVINS (USA)
– Thomas GLOAG (GBR)
– Ben HEALY (IRE)
– Luke LAMPERTI (USA)
– Rudy PORTER (AUS)
– Max WALKER (GBR)
Recently crowned MTB Short Track World Champion Chris Blevins is excited to make his debut for TRINITY’s road team after an impressive season leading their MTB team:
“It’s been a busy couple of months, racing (MTB) in Tokyo and then straight into the World C’ships but my form has been building and I was delighted with how everything went last week (in Italy.) I am hoping to carry some good legs into the Tour of Britain and am excited to be back racing on the road.”
Blevins will be joined by TRINITY’s leading riders from the Giro d’Italia U23 (earlier in the summer), current Irish national champion Ben Healy and British rider Thomas Gloag. Both will be hoping to continue their strong seasons in TRINITY colours. British rider Max Walker, who impressed for the Team at the Tour de la Mirabelle, and young American rider Luke Lamperti, a stage winner at Tour d’Eure et Loir, add further strength to TRINITY’s team. The roster will be completed by young Australian rider Rudy Porter who has really impressed since joining the Team (via TRINITY’s collaboration with Australian based team InForm TMX Make.)
“We are delighted to make our debut at the Tour of Britain next week and to be represented by a team that brings a truly international feel. We are fortunate to have such an incredibly talented group of riders and it has been great to watch them develop throughout the season under the tutelage of Ian (Stannard) and Jurgen (Roelandts). We look forward to racing against some of the best riders in the world next week.” said Andrew McQuaid, founder of Trinity Sports Management, the UK based company behind TRINITY Racing.
“This will be a great test for our riders – going head to head with some of the best teams in professional cycling. It (ToB) is always a very tough week of racing but I’m confident our riders will be able to cope with the challenges ahead” said two-time Tour of Britain stage winner and TRINITY Racing Directeur Sportif Ian Stannard.
