Andy Smallwood, Ribble Cycles CEO said: “The team had me on the edge of my seat in 2021 with some amazing performances in the UK and abroad – and 2022 is set to be an even more exciting year.

“The combination of Ribble’s R&D and a stronger than ever rider line up sees our Ultra SL R being raced by the leading British based team on the world stage.

“Our involvement with RWPC allows us to gain essential product feedback and insights into real world racing conditions and will inform our R&D as we continue to develop and innovate in the creation of world-class racing machines.

“The distinctive aerodynamically optimised lines and new colourway will help the team really standout from the pro peloton.

“As a team we place a heavy emphasis on optimizing all areas of performance from our bikes, equipment, clothing and helmets to in-race strategy.

“To have access to a pure out and out aero bike and all the R&D that has come with it will be a real competitive advantage for us and one that we are looking to put to good use across our calendar, both at home and abroad.”
