Yanto Barker has been signed up by Team Raleigh for the 2014 season, ending weeks of speculation and uncertainty for the former UK Youth rider.
Barker joins the increasingly strong roster at British-based Raleigh, the full details of which will be published by the team shortly.
The 33 year old from Carmarthen took two individual stage wins of the 2013 Tour Series, and helped UK Youth to the overall win. Despite the success, UK Youth folded at the end of the 2013 season due to lack of sponsorship.
Barker's former UK Youth team-mate Ian Wilkinson also joins the squad, as does Joseph Perrett from IG Sigma Sport, Liam Stones from MG-Maxifuel and George Atkins from 100% ME.
Frenchman Alexandre Blain is joined on the team by compatriots Morgan Kneisky and Matthieu Boulo.

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
