Team Dynamo Cover Pro Cycling has revealed the names of the four UK riders who will race with the UCI Conti team which will be based in Brittany (France) with a British sponsor. “These additions strengthen our already diverse international team, which focusses on bringing together and developing young talent from around the world” says the team in a press release.

Further international signings are to be announced.

They join French riders Matthieu and Maxime Le Lavandier, David Chopin, New Zealand rider Nick Kergozou De la Boessière and Irish rider Mark Downey.

Yann Dejan, manager of Dynamo Cover Pro cycling says “Dynamo Cover relies heavily on young riders. It’s mostly a young team and adding more young British riders who have potential makes our team stronger. We want to train them to become real pro racers and progress within our team. We chose Tom Smith because he is a strong rider, with real skills and experience that will be an asset for our Youth. We are sure he will do well with Dynamo Cover.”

It will be interesting to see how we all communicate, given the team has such a multitude of languages – I’ll have to brush up on my GCSE French!

Really happy to be signing my first pro contract with a team which has connections to my homeland Wales”
