Matt has 79 England test caps to date, was a member of the England Team that won three Ashes Series home and away, and was also a member of the number one ranked test side in the world in 2011. Following today’s announcement, Matt Prior said: “Cycling is a huge passion of mine and I am delighted to be setting up ONE Pro Cycling with a team of experienced and dedicated people”.

“It will be a big challenge but one I’m thoroughly looking forward to. The group of riders we have is an exceptional one – not only because of the team’s ability on the bike but also the spirit we have off it. We have a team that could potentially do something very special and that excites me.”

Riders for the ONE Pro Cycling 2015 Team are as follows:
Yanto Barker – Race Captain
George Atkins
Tom Baylis
Johnny Bellis
Marcin Bialoblocki

Marc Hester
Josh Hunt
Jon Mould

Steve Benton, a former Human Performance Coach for Formula 1 and World Rally drivers – including England’s only World Rally Champion, Richard Burns – is ONE Pro Cycling’s Performance Coach. Steve is the driving force behind the recruitment and preparation of the 12 man squad. Matt Winston will join from 1 January 2015 as Sports Director, having spent the last eight years at British Cycling and most recently as the GB Olympic Development Coach. Becky Frewing, who has worked in UK Cycling Teams for the past four years, will head up the squad as Team Manager.

Performance Coach Steve Benton said: “Our main focus for 2015 is to create a team that is both physically and psychologically strong, can readily adapt to a range of competition situations and meet the demands of our varied and challenging race calendar.”

Sports Director Matt Winston said: “I’m delighted to be joining ONE Pro Cycling as Sports Director. It’s exciting to be given the opportunity to work with such a great team both on and off the bike. We have a great mix of riders and through the course of the season I believe we can produce great results. Together we will formulate and implement some really exciting racing for the spectators of the sport in the UK and aim to hit the ground running at the start of the season”.

The announcement of the Continental licence from the UCI is expected shortly. Matt Prior will host the official team launch in London in February 2015.
