Mitchell Webber has predicted a memorable debut season for BIKE Channel Canyon.
The 21-year-old, from Charlton, has signed for Britain’s newest professional cycling team ahead of the 2017 campaign.
He makes the switch from Fleet-based Pedal Heaven, along with eight team-mates and sports director Tim Elverson.
And the former Andover College student can’t wait to get started on a project which will see him ride world-renowned Canyon bikes and come under the spotlight of Sky television channel BIKE.
Webber, who first took up cycling with Andover Wheelers, said:
“I’m really pleased and excited to be a part of BIKE Channel Canyon next season.
“From the first team get-together back in November, it was clear how well everyone was bonding and the confidence in the team was already there.
“I can’t wait to work with the BIKE Channel, who will be documenting a lot of our pre-season training along with the racing.
“I’m also really looking forward to racing on Canyon bikes next year, too. They seem to be racking up all the best bike awards at the moment!
“All in all, it looks like we have a brilliant year ahead.”
