Welsh cyclists Elinor Barker and Amy Roberts are on the list of five British Cycling programme riders named in the Honda Dream Team Professional Cycling Team.

The British registered team will be a new addition to the UCI calendar, and have received the backing of Bradley Wiggins CBE through the Wiggo Foundation.

“I’m really looking forward to racing with DTPC Honda Pro Cycling Team in 2013. It's great for women's cycling not just in the UK, but across the world.”

They join Olympic team pursuit champions Laura Trott, Dani King and Joanna Rowsell.

Roberts, who recently won World Cup silver in the team pursuit with Team SWI Welsh Cycling in Colombia, said "I'm really looking forward to racing with DTPC Honda Pro Cycling Team in 2013. It will be a massive opportunity to be in a team with such already successful riders and I'm sure we will all work well together.

"It is great for women's cycling not just in the UK, but across the world. Having the support from great sponsors and the Wiggo Foundation is fantastic."

Team owner and manager Rochelle Gilmore added: “I believe that having partnerships with companies like Honda and the Wiggo Foundation, the team can function as a truly professional organisation, making the athletes a priority and providing them with what they need in order to reach their potential.”

The team will debut in the Ladies Tour of Qatar to be held from the 30 January and 2 February 2013.
