Ryan Mullen will form part of Cannondale-Drapac‘s squad for the inaugural Revolution Series Champions League in Paris in November, with Tour of Britain stage winner Dylan Groenewegen set to compete for LottoNL-Jumbo.
Mullen, fifth in the elite men’s time trial at the World Championships, is joined by 2014 Tour of Britain winner Dylan van Baarle, Sebastian Langeveld and Patrick Bevin. Mullen has track pedigree, finishing fourth in the individual pursuit at the World Championships in 2014.
Groenewegen, who won the Tour of Britain points classification and stage four to Builth Wells, will ride alongside Belgian time trial champion Victor Campenaerts, Steven Lammertink, Tom Van Asbroeck and Dennis Van Winden.
The latest squad announcements follow those of Team Sky, Giant-Alpecin, Lampre-Merida and Trek-Segafredo. Geraint Thomas, Elia Viviani, Giacomo Nizzolo and Sacha Modolo are among the big-name riders who will be on show.
“I am looking forward to competing in the Revolution Champions League track events. It’s a nice and new way to battle between WorldTour teams on the track, which is obviously a different ground than we normally do,” said Giant-Alpecin squad member Bert de Backer.
The Champions League series consists of three legs, in Paris on November 18/19, Manchester on November 25/26 and London on December 2/3.
