Haribo-Beacon rider James Shaw, who has only just turned 18, will be riding with the highly-rated Lotto-Belisol under-23 team in 2015. Shaw, the winner this year of the junior versions of both Het Nieuwsblad and Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne, has had a strong year both at home and abroad. We asked him how his ‘transfer’ to Belgium it came about.

“It was like applying for a normal job really. I put my CV together with a bit of help from John Barclay and John very kindly sent it out to them,” explained Shaw.
