Lotto-soudal sign up Bri­tish ju­nior

Cycling Weekly - - News -

Former Bri­tish ju­nior road race cham­pion Ja­cob Vaughan has signed for Lotto-soudal’s U23 de­vel­op­ment squad next year.

Vaughan, who has won seven ju­nior races across Europe this sea­son, will fol­low in the foot­steps of James Shaw, who rode for the squad be­fore join­ing the World­tour team this sea­son.

The 18-year-old said he had of­fers from other Bel­gian teams, two French teams and Team Wig­gins but had de­cided to join Lot­tosoudal’s UCI Con­ti­nen­tal-level set-up. “It was pre­dom­i­nantly down to their race

cal­en­dar,” he said. “It’s also a world class set-up. I think my cal­en­dar will be about half U23 and half adult races.

“I think next year is pre­dom­i­nately about my de­vel­op­ment, I’m not ex­pect­ing to get any ma­jor big re­sults. I’d like to per­form well and see how I go.”
