After a successful 2012 that saw more than 20 team victories - including wins as far away as Trinidad and Tobago, all eyes turn to 2013 and the continued development of the Primal Europe Cycling team.
Moving into next year, the squad looks to take another step up the ladder, bringing in some really talented new riders to further strengthen the line-up, and will commit to a full calendar of national and international racing.
The team will be competing in the Premier Calendar and other national events, as well as a small international calendar. They will also be applying for a place in prestigious Tour Series.
A major development for the team is merging with Spin Rotor, who bring both fantastic support and performance enhancing equipment to the table.
Primal Europe continue to provide their excellent cycling clothing to the squad, with the riders able to take advantage of Primal’s innovative new Helix range of performance cycling apparel. C-Originals step up their commitment to become a title sponsor, and along with their increased support, will provide the riders with both helmets and sunglasses.
