The newly formed Madison-Genesis team has announced its ten-man roster for 2013 with former Rapha Condor Sharp riders Andy Tennant and Dean Downing top of the bill.
Team manager Roger Hammond has assembled a squad balanced with five experienced riders and five U23s. Former Endura rider Ian Bibby is also a key signing, as is Liam Holohan who joins from Raleigh.
Newly crowned national hill-climb champion Jack Pullar, 22, is the best known of the young riders and he is joined by Sebastian Bayliss, Alex Peters, Brennan Townshend and Dominic Jelfs.
Madison employee and first category rider Chris Snook is also part of the team which aims to make a name for itself the domestic scene and nurture the younger riders.
The team is yet to unveil the kit that it will wear, although a glance at the team website suggests that it will be an orange and aquamarine affair.
We do however know that the team has taken the interesting decision to race on steel framed machines next year, with Genesis designing a bike for the squad using Reynolds 953 stainless steel.
