News: Harry and Charlie Tanfield to join Ribble Weldtite

Press Release

Ribble Weldtite Pro Cycling are delighted to announce the addition of both Charlie and Harry Tanfield for 2022. With the brothers having a background of Olympic and World Tour competition and being long-term friends of the team, Ribble Weldtite are delighted to help both riders achieve their goals of the highest level of competition.

Harry needs no introduction, having spent the last three years competing at the top tier of the sport at World Tour level. Harry is an accomplished time trialist and single day specialist and having participated in the Vuelta a España, his addition will strengthen the team’s stage racing capabilities as well sharing his experience with the other riders on the team.

Charlie, an Olympian and the younger of the brothers, has predominantly focused on the Track previously and Ribble Weldtite aims to transition this experience into success on the road. With Commonwealth Gold, World and European Championship medals and multiple National titles, the team is excited to elevate Charlie to the next phase of his career.

Charlie: “I’m really looking forward to getting started with the team for 2022, from seeing the team develop from a local club team to what it is today is really encouraging – I can’t wait to get stuck into some road racing with the team and develop as a rider.”

Harry: “With the current situation, I’m delighted to have found a place at a team that can support my ambitions of returning to the highest level in the sport. I want to continue progressing as a rider and help Charlie to develop on the road. I believe I can do so successfully here with a strong European race program. I’ve known the team at Ribble Weldtite for years, competing both with and against many of their current riders. I am looking forward to picking up where I left off at the Nationals and getting stuck in again at the sharp end! ”

Tom Timothy, Team Principal, added “We’re delighted to add both Tanfield’s to the team for 2022. We’ve known both riders for most of their cycling careers, indeed briefly signing Harry for 2021 before assisting in his step back up to World Tour with Team Qhubeka NextHash. We’re excited to have Harry and Charlie for 2022, particularly looking forward to developing Charlie’s untapped potential on the road. For the past few seasons we’ve had our eye on Charlie and felt he’s been sadly under utilised with limited development opportunities on the road. With the team’s expertise at providing riders with the right environment and race calendar we’re expecting to see both Tanfields produce some outstanding results.

2021 was a successful year for the team, with results at the Tour of Britain, Tour of Slovenia and Tour of Norway highlighting international success alongside domestic success with overall victory in the Tour Series. The team’s development ethos and support of a core group of partners means that 2022 is shaping up to be even better with the team continuing at Continental level for 2022.
