In its first year Primera Specialized achieved 13 wins and over 60 podium positions. Based in Bournemouth the team is ideally suited to the buffet of races south of the M4 and is looking to better last year's tally of results in 2013.
There have been some changes with Toby Neave moving on and Will Stephenson (junior) being snapped up by Rapha Condor JLT, after a great year iced off by selection for the Junior World RR Championships in Valkenburg.
These moves have made way for Mitch Webber, a promising young junior previously of Andover Wheelers. A great race head on his shoulders, a fast pair of legs and at only 52kgs he will be looking to make waves in the junior races targeting the Junior National RR Champs and the Junior Tour of Wales.
Adding some depth and experience, Jason Duckworth, previously of VC St Raphael, will be riding road and track. Once a seasoned junior competing with the likes of the Downing Bros and Jeremy Hunt, he also raced on the continent before hanging up his wheels to concentrate on a career in the Navy. Bikes over boats and he is back, quickly moving up to take 1st cat licence and looking to better that this year.
