Derby based Forme Bikes UK announce a six rider line up to ride the 2013 season.
Brand and team principal Adam Biggs said: “We are a young brand so investing in youth is the perfect fit for us as they share the same drive and ambitions. We have signed some of the best Youth A riders from last season together with some more experienced guys but true to our roots here in Derbyshire all riders are from the Midlands region.”
The race calendar will be built around the National Junior Road Series. Also in the plan is for the team to race on the continent and in Ireland as well as on the domestic senior circuit with the first competitive ride out being the Eddie Soens on 2 March.
Adam added: “We are looking forward to watching this team develop over the next two seasons, many of the riders have already proven themselves at the highest level of youth riding so the transition to juniors is an exciting prospect”.
The official team launch took place at a wintry Hibbs Lupus Trust 50/50 Sportive organised by Cannock based Run & Ride. Other team sponsors for the 2013 season are Lake Shoes and Limar Helmets.
