Plowman Craven Madison rider Jonathan Tiernan-Locke has made a mid-year transfer to the Sports Beans team, a highly unusual decision to make at this time in the season.

“Jon Tiernan Locke is joining us from Plowman Craven,” said Sports Beans manager, Clive Richardson.

“What can I say, apart from the fact that their loss is our gain! Jon is a very fine elite rider and we look forward to even more impressive results with his arrival”.

Jonathan Tiernan–Locke’s departure now leaves a possible place on the team for the remainder of the 2009 season”.
