A versatile and experienced roadman, Rich Handley's form has been prolific across the British road series and Tour Series events.
Rich Handley joined Madison Genesis in 2017 and made an impact at the Chorley GP, splitting the race on the final climb and riding into fifth position. In 2018 Handley went even better, placing third in Chorley and underlining his versatility with a pair of top-three finishes in the Tour Series.
In 2016 the 27-year-old rider from Warrington rode to second in the King of the Mountains classification at the Tour de Yorkshire, as well as taking fifth at the British time trial championships.
"I like how the team races aggressively, taking it on and it is good to race like that.
"Personally there have not been that many races that I’ve done for myself. Usually I’m helping Connor, Matt or Johnny and I enjoy doing that.
"I think I’ll always be there when the race is on and I quite enjoy helping. I get as much from that as doing something myself."
