Cycling Team News

Quite a lot of team news going about the place at the moment.

Firstly Rapha Condor have announced their team line-up for next year. I believe one of the strongest line-ups on the UK circuit. They've signed Jonathan Tiernan Locke from the defunkt SportsBeans team. Jonathan put on some excellent performances last year and is a great signing. This added with getting workhorse Graham Briggs from CandiTV, alongside British National Road Champion Kristan House and crit powerhouses Chris Newton and Dean Downing.

My one to watch, not only in Rapha Condor but in the season as a whole will be Darren Lapthorne. The Aussie put some amazing performances last year, getting in 3 or more breakaways in the Tour of Britain and the legendary ride at the Chester Tour Series.
