WIth the team since 2014, Tobyn Horton enters his fifth year with the squad chasing more sprint success.
Taking number one spot at the Ilkley crit and an instrumental part of the Tour Series team, Horton also revealed his abilities off-road in the mountain bike vs. road video at the end of the season!
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.
"2017 was another enjoyable year with the Madison Genesis lads, I think we really punched above our weight against a tough JLT team in the Tour Series, and on a personal note it was great to be back racing on local roads at the Tour de Yorkshire.
"Again the Tour Series will be a big priority for myself and the team in 2018 but I’m working hard toward getting some consistent road form back. I’m also looking forward to representing Guernsey at the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in Australia."
