Enjoying his fourth year with the team, Tobyn’s strengths were traditionally in criterium and GP-style races, having spent several years on the Belgian kermesse scene and recording two Tour Series victories.
Breaking into the top-10 at RideLondon – the best British rider – alongside World Tour opposition showed Horton’s versatility and potential to transition to the biggest stage.
This result came despite some injury problems and in 2017 Horton will hope for a trouble-free year with the opportunity to broaden his racing horizons.
"2016 was a bit of a rough year with a bit of a niggling injury for the first part of the season, so I was glad to be able to help the team with a few Tour Series rounds and then to get some results later on in the season at RideLondon and Sheffield Grand Prix which was some consolation.
“I’m happy and excited to be staying onboard Madison Genesis for 2017 and can’t thank everyone enough for their support last year. I’m looking forward to repaying the team for their belief in me and also excited for the likes of the Tour de Yorkshire, Tour of Britain and also being back at the front of of the likes of the Tour Series and the UCI European races we did last year”
