Individual Pursuit world champion in 1989, British National champion on the road in 1990, a Commonwealth Games medallist in 1986 and 1998, Sturgess has a wealth of experience to share from his time as a competitive rider. Colin has however also shown his ability to translate this knowledge into rider success, notably directing Connor Swift to a National Championship victory in 2018 during his tenure at Madison-Genesis.

“I’ve known the guys at Ribble Weldtite for some years now and am delighted to be part of such a progressive team. Their focus on developing their riders and providing a platform to progress is really exciting to me.” Sturgess said. “I’m looking forward to having the chance to work with some really talented riders and help them take steps forward in the sport.”

In the next few months and into 2021, more than ever it is pivotal for the team to create and facilitate a real team-focused environment, tackling challenges that arise as a united group. I see Colin playing a crucial role in that.”
