News: Lizzy banks Signs for UnitedHealthcare

Team Press Release
UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling is excited to announce its preliminary UCI women’s team roster for the 2018 racing season. Proven time trial and GC rider Leah Thomas and emerging British talent Lizzy Banks are the newest additions to the team.

Banks, this year’s overall winner of Britain’s Women’s National Road Series, has quickly become a rising star in both the U.K and European circuits. “We see a ton of potential in Lizzy,” said Heal, herself a former National Road Series champion. “The UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling team is excited to see her develop by giving her plenty of opportunities to excel and grow under the tutelage of some of the best riders in the world.”

A native of Sheffield, 26-year-old Banks looks forward to building on her proven consistency and all-around prowess to booster team and personal gains. “The U.S. offers a great variety of challenging racing that will be different to what I have previously experienced in the UK and Europe,” Banks said. “With the support of an incredibly knowledgeable and experienced team it’s a wonderful place for me to continue my development and transition in to professional racing. I’m particularly looking forward to stage racing and using my strength as an all-rounder to contribute toward team victories. Personally, I hope to develop towards the goal of achieving a UCI podium placing and I can’t think of a better place to do it.”
