Former British road race champion Kristian House will leave JLT-Condor at the end of 2015, ending his eight-year association with the team.
House, the 2009 Nationals winner, has ridden for John Herety's squad through its various guises as Rapha Condor-Recycling.co.uk and Rapha Condor-Sharp since joining from the American Navigators squad for 2008.
House’s combative style has brought him wins in the 2011 Tour of South Africa and the King of the Mountains jersey at the 2012 Tour of Britain, as well as stage wins in the 2010 Tour of Japan and 2011 Vuelta Ciclista a Leon.
The 35-year-old won two Tour Series overall titles with the “men in black”, and numerous round victories, the last of the latter came in Motherwell earlier this year.
“I will miss Kristian riding for Condor; he was a consummate professional and great ambassador. Everyone looks for new challenges to keep their drive and spark; I wish him all the best next season," said team owner Grant Young.
House's last race for JLT is expected to be next month's Tour of Britain, which starts in Anglesey on September 6.
It's understood that House isn't retiring and that news of his next project will be announced soon; One Pro Cycling are believed to be interested in signing him.
