Pendragon has beefed up somewhat for 2010 with former solo operator Yanto Barker joining Dave Clarke at the head of the 11-man squad. The Welshman returned to racing last year after a few years out and showed great form immediately, gaining a podium spot at the CiCLE Classic.
Barker brings his own clothing company in as co-sponsor while Colnago provide the bikes. Premier Calendar and Tour Series races are the main targets, while team principle Nick Bourne aims for Pendragon to be capable of competing in the Tour of Britain within two years.
