The 12 rider team includes some of the best U-23 riders from around the world and is led by returning riders; prodigious British trio Mark Donovan (19), Tom Pidcock (19) and current U-23 GB National road race champion, Robert Scott (20).

Also returning for another season with the team are newly crowned New Zealand National road race champion James Fouché (20) and Irish U-23 time trial champion Michael O’Loughlin (21).
The team enjoyed it’s most successful season to date in 2018, which included multiple stage victories for Gabriel Cullaigh at Volta ao Alentejo and a stage win by Mark Donovan at Valle d’Aosta.

The latter also led the General Classification (after stage 7) at one of the most prestigious U-23 stage races on the calendar, the Girobio.

“I am very proud of how the team has developed over the last few seasons. The bar gets higher and higher each year and the team’s results last season is testament to that. I am really looking forward to seeing riders like Mark, Tom and James compete for WIGGINS Le Col again this season combined with some of the new young talent we’ve added…it’s very exciting”: said Sir Bradley Wiggins, Team founder and Britain’s most decorated ever Olympian.
