Less than five months on from winning the Matrix Fitness Grand Prix Series, Eileen Roe has progressed to joining British international squad Wiggle Honda for 2015.

Roe won the overall title of Britain’s leading women’s cycle race series, the Matrix Fitness Grand Prix Series this June, sealing the title in Woking with a win, to add to her earlier victory in Peterborough.

Now the rider, who represented Scotland at the Commonwealth Games this Summer, will be changing from the colours of Starley Primal Pro Cycling to the black and orange of Wiggle Honda for 2015.

Roe’s move marks the second year in succession that the winner of the Matrix Fitness GP Series has been able to step up to riding at the international level with a UCI team, following Hannah Barnes’ victory in 2013 that saw her join UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling.

“I am super excited to race in the famous colours of black and orange that is Wiggle Honda,” said Roe speaking to the Wiggle Honda team website. “I am so proud and thankful to have this amazing opportunity to race along side such talented women already to have been announced in the teams very strong 2015 line up.

“I cant wait to work along side Egon Van Kessel and Rochelle Gilmore, who have massive wealth of experience to pass on and learn from, to help me develop into a better bike rider to achieve the very best from myself.”

The move means Roe’s national circuit race champion’s stripes will be seen in action in Australia from next month, as the Scot joins the team to contest Australia’s Summer criterium season.
