Essex-based Orbea missed out on a Tour Series invite this year so will be concentrating hard on the Premier Calendar and featuring heavily in any road races down South. The vastly experienced Andy Lyons is captain on the road while James Whatling combines managerial and riding duties.

Good to see the sponsors backing a five-strong women’s team too, headed by Olympic gold medallist Rebecca Romero.
