Under-23 British road race champion in 2012, Mike Cuming has previously shown his talent with standout results – including overall victory at the Tour de Korea.
Joining Madison Genesis from Neon Velo, Cuming returns to racing at UCI Continental level.
This gives him the opportunity of an expanded race calendar one year after returning from spending 2016 in Australia.
"I’m super excited for 2018 to start, it feels good to be going back up to continental level.
"I would love to get some decent results in some of the UCI races in Europe and of course I’ve grown up with the Premier Calendar races, so to win one and podium in some that suit my style would make me a very happy man and I know I’m well capable of it.
"I see the riders the team has put together and when I look around I’m honoured to be racing with some of them, there is no one I wouldn’t want to room with; I think they are all classy bike riders and nice blokes.
"The 2018 season can’t come quick enough. Madison has given me another chance to make it at this level and I’m ready to take it with both hands."
