“I'm really looking forward to racing with Madison Genesis this season, I love racing the kind of calendar the team has done over the last few years and I know lots of the lads too so it should be a great year!
“I really think we have the team to perform at the national road series, Tour Series and the Tour de Yorkshire and Tour of Britain too. I'll be made up if I can be a part of the team’s success. The hard graft starts now!”
