Talented teenager Xander Graham has signed for the new American Jukebox Cycling team just months after becoming an overnight star at the 2021 Tour of Britain.

The Scottish cyclist became the sensation of last year’s race when he rode alongside the breakaway and was presented with a bidon from Team Jumbo – Visma’s Pascal Eenkhoorn during stage seven.

The moment was caught live on television and shown around the world, with the video receiving over 1.6m views on the Tour of Britain social media accounts.

Eenkhoorn was part of a five-rider breakaway near the end of the stage, alongside eventual winner Yves Lampaert, and handed his bidon to Xander while he rode alongside them on the pavement as they raced towards the finish in Holyrood Park, Edinburgh.

Describing themselves as a multidisciplinary cycling team, Jukebox say their man goal is promoting positive people doing awesome things on and off the bike. The team’s roster includes former WorldTour pro Phil Gaimon.

“Who says dreams don’t come true?” said Xander, who won the Scottish U14 cyclo-cross title in November, of his move to Jukebox Cycling. Visit jukeboxcycling.com for more information.

Additionally, Alex Whitehead’s photo of the famous moment – immortalised in the most liked Instagram post in Tour of Britain history – deservedly continues to generate attention.

Last month it won the Best of Cycling 2021 award in a competition organised by Italian cycling photographer Roberto Bettini and legendary sports newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport. Eleven-time Grand Tour stage winner Daniele Bennati oversaw the judging panel.

Of the photograph, Gazzetta wrote: “The bottle is the symbol of the most famous photo in the history of cycling, and of sport in general: the passage of the water bottle between Fausto Coppi and Gino Bartali on the climb of the Galibier [at the] Tour de France 1952.

“Another has become the subject of the iconic photo of the 2021 season. Tour of Britain, stage seven, 11 September: a 14-year-old boy chases the breakaway group on the sidewalk and does not give up. At one point the Dutch rider Pascal Eenkhoorn sees him, approaches him and gives him the bottle.”

Graham and Eenkhoorn were reunited at the following day’s stage thanks to Tour sponsor Eisberg. The teenager was invited onto the Team Jumbo – Visma bus and joined them on the podium for the official sign-on ceremony.

And while Jukebox Cycling aren’t eligible to be invited to the Tour of Britain, what price Graham competes in the race in the coming years?
