Graham Briggs, Jonathan Tiernan Locke, Zak Dempster and Dean Windsor will all join the British-based Rapha-Condor squad for 2010.

The quartet will join existing Rapha-Condor riders Dean Downing, Chris Newton, British national champion Kristian House, Darren Lapthorne, Tom Southam, Dan Craven, Ben Greenwood and Matt Cronshaw, who have all been retained for next season.

Former Rapha riders Simon Richardson, Liam Holohan, Rhys Lloyd and Mike Rudling are all absent from the new roster. Richardson has joined Sigma Sport and Holohan and Lloyd have signed to Raleigh.

Rapha-Condor is again aiming to compete on the continental and British professional circuits, with its overseas racing campaign scheduled to start at the Tour de Vaucluse in France. The team will also be in full force at the opening Premier Calendar round, the Tour of the Reservoir (March 28).

In addition to contesting road races with a strengthened team, Rapha-Condor has augmented an already strong criterium line-up with its new signings. Last year’s Elite Circuit Series winner Downing will be joined by Briggs and Australian crit specialist Windsor at the national crit series and the televised Tour Series.

Team management remains unchanged for next season, with John Herety at the helm.
