Halfords Bikehut

A curious mix of riders don the orange Halfords jerseys this year. Reigning national road champion Rob Hayles is joined by former under-23 academy riders Andy Tennant and Mark McNally, while Olympic gold medallist Ed Clancy joins from Belgian outfit Landbouwkrediet.

Former Rapha-Condor man Rob Partridge also comes on board, with the trio of Ian Wilkinson, Ian Bibby and David Fletcher mixing road and off-road duties as they did last year with SiS-trek.

Manager Keith Lambert aims for a good showing in the Premier Calendar and a podium spot in the Tour of Britain. Hayles and Clancy should put the orange and black jerseys in the frame.
