Sir Bradley Wiggins said: “We’re all chuffed to be working with a world-class brand like Hyundai. They’re a great fit for Team Wiggins as it’s a global company with a really positive spirit and attitude.
The boys and I are hoping for a great year ahead on the professional cycling tour. The diversity of the Hyundai cars we have at our disposal means we’re 100% ready for the demands of the race schedule, be it on the tight Yorkshire lanes or down the streets of London for the Tour of Britain.”
Team Wiggins also announced a partnership with Yorkshire wholesaler YESSS Electrical, who become the main sponsor of the team.
YESSS join the likes of Rapha, Pinarello and Sky in supporting the British Continental team.
