TRANSFER NEWS: Wheeler expected to join Hammers

Horspath are happy to announce the signing of former Junior World Champion and two time British champion Gavin Wheeler, subject to British Cycling approval

Horspath team manager Zac Payne said “I’m excited that Gavin has joined us for the 2020 season he will bring lots of experience and knowledge to the team, which our younger riders will thrive off. We tried to sign Gavin back in 2016 for what was the final year of the Elite League but unfortunately the transfer fell through at the last moment, so we’re happy to finally sign Gavin in what could be a good year for the Hammers after signing Ben Mould earlier this month.

Gavin is eligible for the veterans category as well as Danny Harper who is returning to the sport, David Liebermann and Lukas Nowacki both turning 40 and the evergreen Andy Johnson Horspath now have a strong base of veteran riders at the club.
