We’ve kept pretty quiet about our support for the new UCI Continental race team Bike Channel Canyon… so far that is. Over the coming months we’ll share images and insights from the team as they aim to become the most dominant UCI Continental team in the UK, Europe and beyond. We’re really excited to be supporting the team and alongside a pretty awesome line of sponsors we’re sure there will be some great offers coming your way soon, too.
The UK based team is managed by Tim Elverson and their lead rider is Chris Opie who joined from One Pro Cycling and with an average age of just 24, we’re pretty sure that they’re set to be a team to watch over the coming years.
The team have already enjoyed some excellent successes this season and this weekend they were up at the Tour of Yorkshire where they certainly held their own with Chris Opie taking third place in the opening bunch sprint in Scarborough and Harry Tanfield winning the combaticivity jersey in Harrogate.
Speaking to Cycling Weekly after the event, Tim Elverson said that he believes the squad have shown “exactly what they are capable of […] I’m really pleased. We’ve set out with a plan, we set out to enjoy the race, we set out to race the way we always race, aggressively and on the front foot and that’s exactly what we’ve done.”
You’ll be able to catch lots more information about the team on the Bike Channel who are going to follow them throughout the season. And, what’s more, they’re offering two speedy cyclists the opportunity to race with the team at the Revolve 24 race in September at Brands Hatch.
Yellow Jersey provide Bike Channel Canyon with their essential UCI accredited team insurance.
