Last year’s Yodel Sprints and SKODA King of the Mountains Jersey winner Peter Williams will return to the Tour of Britain this September as the ONE Pro Cycling squad reveal their line-up that will join the world-class rider list for the Tour of Britain.

ONE Pro Cycling will be lining up for their second Tour of Britain, a cornerstone in British road racing, the Tour promises eight stages of thrilling racing packed with spectacular scenery as riders make the journey down the western side of the British Isles. 

The team made their debut appearance at the Tour in 2015 having enjoyed a plethora of success with Pete Williams taking home both the Yodel Sprints jersey and coveted SKODA King of the Mountains jersey.   Williams also won the Yodel Sprints Jersey in 2012.

Looking back on 2015, Yorkshire resident Pete Williams is aiming to build on the team’s success commenting, “2015 was a fantastic year for the team and we’re looking forward to improving on our performance and securing some great results. Our race schedule has had us travelling around the world this season but it’s hard to beat support from a home crowd, the atmosphere is incredible.” 

Joining him in the six rider line-up will be another former jersey winner in Britain’s biggest professional cycle race, with 2012 SKODA King of the Mountains Kristian House also returning, and getting to ride on home roads in Cheshire during Stage Three from Congleton to Tatton Park, Knutsford.

Alongside them will be two riders familiar to fans of the British racing scene from 2015, with Australian sprinter Steele von Hoff riding, having already won races in Norway and Romania for ONE Pro Cycling this year.
27-year-old Polish rider Karol Domagalski helped the team to victory in the Team Time Trial of the Ronde van Midden Nederland at the weekend, and has two stage wins in the Tour of Korea to his name this season.

Two riders will make their Tour of Britain debut, with Kiwi duo Hayden McCromick and Dion Smith completing the line-up.

24-year-old Dion Smith won the Beaumont Trophy on British roads this Summer, and is excited to be making his Tour of Britain debut, in his first season with the UCI ProContinental squad.

“It’s been a great experience riding for a British team and I’m excited to be given the opportunity to race in the biggest British event on the calendar. From what I’ve seen in previous years, I’m in for eight days of tough racing against a solid line up but we have a really strong team so we’ll be looking to animate each stage as much as possible.”  

Leading on the race, Head Sports Director Matt Winston is confident the roster that has been selected will ensure the team are on the front foot throughout. “The race is a major goal for the team and we are proud to go into our second Tour of Britain off the back of a great season. The six riders on our roster are all hugely ambitious and I’m sure when we roll out of Glasgow on Sunday we will be in the best possible shape for eight days of exciting racing.” 

The peloton will find itself completing the final stage on Sunday 11 September with an iconic circuit race in the heart of London’s City Centre where ONE Pro Cycling will once again take over Tiger Tiger in Haymarket London to host ONE Pro Cycling House, a fantastic opportunity for cycling fans to get up close and personal to their favourite teams and riders.
