Team Wiggins stars line-up for Beaumont Trophy

Event Press Release

The Team Wiggins line-up for the Beaumont Trophy race has been announced and includes some of the UK’s finest young riders. The race takes place on Sunday 19th June and is the final event of the three-day Cyclone Festival of Cycling, based in Northumberland.


Representing Team Wiggins will be Mark Christian (26), Jon Dibben (above) (22), Owain Doull (23) Jake Kelly (19), Chris Latham (22) and Andrew Tennant (29). The team will be the focus of considerable interest on the day, with several of them likely to be in contention for places in the GB Team for the Rio Olympics. Last year’s Beaumont Trophy winner, Chris Latham, joins Tennant, Doull and Dibben as likely members of the GB Team Pursuit squad for Rio.

Dibben’s recent elbow injury is thought likely to heal in time for him to be able to participate in the Beaumont Trophy, where his outstanding win in the Points Race at the 2016 World Track Championships and some fine early season road performances will make him a marked man, for his rivals and young fans alike.

Organiser Peter Harrison said: “The Wiggins team are particularly welcome at the Cyclone Festival of Cycling’s Beaumont Trophy. Although not expected to ride himself, Bradley Wiggins has played a central role in the history of this race, winning it twice in 2009 and 2011, on the second occasion, claiming the national title into the bargain. We are also very pleased to welcome back last year’s winner, Chris Latham, who will be riding the race in Wiggins’ colours for the first time.”
