Climber, young and enthusiastic
Showing promise as a junior when he placed second at the junior Tour of Wales, Matt Holmes experienced a breakout season in 2016.
Finishing top-20 at the Tour de Yorkshire with a gritty performance on the hilly final stage, Holmes was one of a few domestic riders who could live with the ferocious pace of World Tour opposition.
Seventh at the An Post Ras another race renowned for its attritional nature underlined Holmes resilience and stage race credentials, while making the break with Geraint Thomas and Ian Stannard at Ride London put him in the spotlight once again.
