News – GB Team for Tour de Yorkshire

The Great Britain team has confirmed the team who will ride for Great Britain at the Tour de Yorkshire, taking place from 1 – 3 May 2015.

The young squad is made up predominantly from British Cycling’s Olympic Academy Programme and includes local riders Gabriel Cullaigh and Oliver Wood, whilst Leeds-born Josh Edmondson who spent two years at Team Sky, will guest ride with the team.


Team manager Keith Lambert said: “The Tour de Yorkshire represents a significant development opportunity for the under-23 academy riders and one which I know they’re all looking forward to. For them to take part in a Tour de France legacy race against some of the world’s best riders is a real exciting prospect and I’m hoping they will be able to learn from the British professionals such as Sir Bradley Wiggins, Ben Swift and Steve Cummings whilst in the peloton.”

Riders to watch out for in what will be a very hilly race will be Josh Edmondson from Yorkshire and Welshman Scott Davies (U23 British TT Champion) who has top 10’d in the Junior Road Worlds and as they say, ‘can climb a bit’.
