Team FBUK double signing
Squad complete for 2006
With the announcement of 2 further additions to Team FBUK, the 2006 squad and development squad are complete.
FBUK are pleased to announce a double of two of the most talented riders in
the UK. Firstly Emma
Silversides has joined the squad. Emma
has impressed all of those that have seen her attacking riding style in the
UK. With a win in the National
Series at the very tough Mendip Hill Road Race, and finishing 3rd
overall in the series, Emma has proved herself to be a tough competitor.
The next step in Emma’s career is to ride with the support of a
team and also begin to gain European racing experience.
A specialist climber but strong all round rider, Emma is a very
strong addition to the squad for 2006.
joining Team FBUK, Emma said, 'I'm very excited about the prospect of racing
with Team FBUK next season. My success on the bike up until now has been
achieved as an individual rider without the support of other riders so this
will be a whole new experience for me. Consequently, I'm looking forward to
learning a lot more about the sport and hope to benefit from being a part of
a such an enthusiastic and talented team.'
Team FBUK have signed Catherine Hare an experienced all round rider who has
been based in Italy for the past 12 months.
Following a successful season racing for Great Britain in Europe,
Cath signed for Bianchi and rode a tough but successful season in 2005
taking part in many major races throughout Europe.
ridden with many of the Team FBUK riders in the past, including Helen Wyman
and Emma Pooley in the World Championships this year, Cath has fitted in
well within the squad.
is the final signing and addition to the 14-rider squad for 2006.
