The Madison Genesis team will enter their third season of racing in 2015 with a revamped line-up, which includes this year’s Friends Life Tour of Britain SKODA King of the Mountains Mark McNally.

McNally joins the team of Roger Hammond after several seasons with the An Post Chain Reaction squad, having impressed his new manager with his riding and composure during September’s Friends Life Tour of Britain, when he claimed the SKODA sponsored best climbers jersey.

Other new signings include Guernsey rider James McLaughlin, who impressed during the Pearl Izumi Jersey International Grand Prix this June, and former scratch race World Champion Martyn Irvine, who raced in the Series with the Ireland squad in 2010.

“The 2014 racing season was a great success for the team and I feel the transfer season was a continuation of that,” said Team Manager Roger Hammond. “I am really pleased the successful core of this year’s team is returning again next year, ensuring we already had a very firm foundation with which to build the team.  With the variety of the new riders coming to the team, from National Junior champions through to international race winners, I couldn’t have hoped for a better line up to go into battle with next year. It going to be exciting!”
