Recently-crowned European individual and team pursuit champion Andy Tennant believes that joining the new UCI-ranked team being put together by Bradley Wiggins for 2015 is an "obvious move".

Cycling Weekly revealed last week that Tennant, along with Mark Christian, look set to ride alongside the 2012 Tour de France winner at the development team he is setting up for next season. Olympic gold medallist Steven Burke is also understood to be joining the squad, which aims to support the Great Britain's men's endurance team in the build-up to the Rio 2016 Games.
