Senior Squad Manager, David Brown commented: “Signing Rob has added strength to our squad and we are excited to have built on our sponsorship for the team along with our ambition for the next season, we have a domestic focus mixing Premier Calendar events, elite criteriums and time trial events. There are some new signing which will be announced over the coming days that will bring more versatility to our outfit.”

BBM Director and rider Ashley Brown added: “Our team is set to become a spring board for riders to showcase themselves at top flight UK competition, which is become increasingly competitive year on year.

"Our Performance Pathway began as an idea in May and now has ten youth coaches working with kids from 5-15 in Knottingley, our junior section of the club is growing organically and we are forming a Junior Academy that will allows talented riders to compete in the National Junior Road Series and hopefully progress through our senior team and onto professional contracts. Combined with our own race promotions and experience in the team this is not only a great set up for winning big races, but also the perfect environment for developing future talent.”
