Over the next week or so we will be introducing you to our new team members and giving a bit of background info on them.
We will have a full line up of existing team members and also let you know who does what within the team.
We now have increased support from the Hull University Sports Science Dept who are now working closely with the performance testing of the WLM team. This has already been beneficial over the winter training months.
The first new addition to be welcomed aboard is Alex Mitchell. Alex will be racing an Orbea Orca SLT for the WLM RT for the 2012 race season.
