The second-youngest rider on the squad at 21-years-old, Joey Walker has a wealth of experience and plenty of opportunity to continue his development.
After a horror-crash at the Tour of Britain in 2018, Walker is back in business and has big ambitions as one of the UK's leading under-23 riders.
One of Britain’s most promising youngsters on the track, Joey has enjoyed a wide range of races on the road as a junior and under-23, including the world championships and Paris Roubaix.
Domestically, Walker took wins at the Colne and Sheffield GP races in 2018, making him another prospect for the Tour Series squad.
I’m still aiming to break into the World Tour and I have two years to do it. Being on this team you’re in the races you need to be to get you noticed.
The Tour de Yorkshire has added significance because another aim is getting selected for the under-23 road worlds.
The Tour de Yorkshire is the only place you can ride the finishing circuit. That will help me toward another goal.
Then there are the under-23 national time trial championships. If you’re winning that kind of race, that’s what bigger teams are looking for.
So it would be good to get some big results and get my name out there.
