Team News: Five New Riders for Canyon Eisberg

Tim Elverson has unveiled five new signings as he prepares for battle with Canyon Eisberg in 2018. The five new riders are Andy Tennant, Charlie Tanfield, Alex Paton, Louis Rose-Davies and Charles Page. Elverson has also retained the services of Joe Fry, Dexter Gardias, James Lowsley-Williams, Matt Nowell, Chris Opie, Jack Pullar, Max Stedman, Harry Tanfield and Rory Townsend.

The UCI Continental outfit, who raced as BIKE Channel Canyon last season, will take to the road with a squad of 14 and an average age of just 23.5. That statistic is lower than last term (24) as sports director Elverson continues to put his faith in young talent.

Elverson said: “We have five new riders for 2018 and we have retained all our solid performers from last season, which I am very pleased about. Combine those 14 with the same strong backroom staff and I expect us to make further progress this year. Andy was an interesting one for me. I have admired his riding from afar for some time and he is someone I’ve always kept one eye on tactically. We had a chat and I felt straight away we would work well together. There are still many road goals he wants to achieve”.

“Add to that the experience he brings to my young squad and he became someone I was very keen to sign. Charlie rode a number of UCI races with us as a stagiaire. He fitted in really well and showed me there is plenty more to come, so I quickly signed him up. His recent track performances have highlighted what I already thought and I am very excited for 2018″.

“I’ve worked closely with Alex before and have had good success with him. He left me to go to Madison with my blessing. They are a great team and it presented a good opportunity for him. But I worked hard to get him back and look forward to getting him rolling this season. I also want to keep that core of six under-23s within our squad. Louis and Charles are both exciting prospects and I have no doubt they will fit in well with us.”
