Team Hope Factory Racing has continued the rapid growth of its road team with the addition of Sam Ward.
Ward, who raced in northern France for two seasons as a member of amateur team CC Plancoet in his earlier years, will now focus on the Premier Calendar and national criteriums. Commenting on the move, Hope Technology’s Team Manager Lee Owen-Stanford said: “I am delighted to have had the opportunity to sign Sam for Team Hope Factory Racing for next season.
“Having had a successful amateur racing career in the north west of France with a string of podium positions, Sam brings the experience of racing in the European scene to the team, which will without question be a benefit to all of the guys. Knowing how Sam races, it brings another angle of opportunity for our road race team.”
