Vancouver, BC – It is with pleasure to announce that the team will have a former rider, Travis Samuel, return to the team for 2019.
Travis is a rider who has shown systematic progression in the sport. Travis had one of his best seasons in 2017 when he rode for the H&R Block Pro Cycling and he looks forward to rejoining the team after spending the 2018 season with Silber Pro Cycling. Travis was 7th at the 2018 Canadian Nationals TT Championships, in 2017 he wore the best Young Rider jersey at the Volta a Portugal UCI 2.1, was 3rd U23 at Taihu Lake UCI 2.1 and 9th at the Hong Kong Road Race UCI 1.1.
“I’m really excited to be returning and joining the DCBank Pro Cycling team for the 2019 season!! After a rough season in 2018 and the market flooded with riders, it’s amazing to have the opportunity to come back and work with Mark, Maxime and the whole management behind the M1 Project once again. I’ve seen some of my career best results racing with the M1 Project (H&R Block Pro Cycling Team) globally so the transition of moving teams back to a management I’ve worked with in the past will be an easy move and one I look forward to”, said Samuel.
The team will continue to grow their international relationships with race organizers in Europe and Asia to provide a first class racing calendar. “The international calendar and number of race days that are provided is one of the things that drew me back to the program when I was searching for a team. I’m looking forward to the opportunity of producing some big results once again with this squad with the international calendar being given as well as mentoring some of the younger guys on the squad as much as I can.” explains Samuel.
Travis is a loyal teammate and will bring consistency to the team, as he is a rider that is regularly in the top 10 at key UCI races. The team looks forward to having Travis rejoin the program and use the 2019 season to show that he is ready to take the next step in the sport.
