The ten-man team will challenge for the Premier Calendar, Tour Series, Tour of Britain, Tour of Ireland and a number of international and continental events. Former Halfords Bikehut team manager Keith Lambert will take the helm for 2010.
Former CandiTv-Marshalls Pasta rider Russell Downing, who won the Tour of Ireland for the squad in 2009, has left to join Team Sky for 2010.
The team had only just returned from a ten-day training camp in Mallorca on Friday afternoon before making their appearance on Saturday night. Clancy, Tennant and Williams were in action during the Revolution race programme, with Clancy and Tennant winning the Madison 1km TT.
