In 2017 Mark competed in a very broad road program including the Tour de l'Avenir, the Tour of Britain and Etoile de Besseges, recording some notable results across the year. In 2018 Mark focused purely on the track which was rewarded with a Gold medal in the points race at the Commonwealth Games and a Bronze medal in the World Championships. For 2019 Mark will mix a road program with the team with a track program for GB, beginning his competitive season on the road in May following an endurance camp in New Zealand.

Mark said on his decision to join the team; “Riding for Ribble Pro Cycling in 2019 is a massive opportunity for me, and one I am not taking lightly. I am looking forward to getting stuck into some hard racing with the lads. The team seems already as a real community and one I am excited to play my part in. After the World Track Championships in March, I will be turning by attention to the road. My main objective is to pick up a win at a UCI event and obviously like everyone else I am looking forward to the biggest British races.”

Ribble Pro Cycling added; “Mark’s multi-disciplinary ability fits perfectly with the team’s approach and existing riders. He is not only experienced on the biggest international stage, but also at a UCI Europe Tour level which is often overlooked. Mark will play an integral role in the team and we are delighted with his addition. We are excited about his return to the road and what that will bring both to the team and to Mark.”

Ribble Pro Cycling have continued to develop year on year and built a sustainable platform for success and progression. The team are competing at a UCI continental level in 2019.

Ribble Pro Cycling continue to put their final preparations together ahead of next season ahead of a successful 2018 campaign that included over a 100 victories.
