Eight teams selectd for 2014 Tour Series


The eight squads that will contest this year’s Pearl Izumi Tour Series, Britain’s unique team-based cycle race Series, were been unveiled at Madison’s iceBike Show on Thursday 27th February.



Riders from six of the eight teams who will contents the full Series were present at the trade show to help to officially launch the 2014 Series, the sixth season of televised, team based racing in Britain’s town and city centres.


Two previous Tour Series Champions in Rapha Condor JLT and Velosure Giordana lead the way, with Felix English and Steve Lampier respectively in attendance at iceBike. The UK’s three other UCI Continental registered teams, Madison Genesis (represented by Liam Holohan), Team Raleigh (represented by Liam Stones) and NFTO Pro Cycling will also join them in the Series, the latter of whom will make their full Series debuts at Round One in Stoke-on-Trent, and brought former UCI World Tour rider Adam Blythe to confirm their participation.


Also making their full Pearl Izumi Tour Series will be Fleet-based Pedal Heaven Colbornes, who step up having raced as a guest team in previous seasons, with Lewis Atkins representing the team at the launch.


Having made their debut in 2013, Starley Primal return with a new look and an expanded line-up, while Series stalwarts Metaltek Cycling return having won their first ever round last year, and with David Povall, the man behind Team UK Youth’s 2013 success at the helm.
