I have no doubt that this transition is crucial for my personal growth and my future as a professional cyclist and I?m eagerly awaiting the start of this new journey.”
Mauro Gianetti (Team Principal) : “Ryan is a versatile rider who has shown himself to be very dynamic and a strong team player. He has progressed well over the past few seasons and we hope he can continue that progression in our team as we continue to build for the future.”
