Eagles sign top riders for Elite and British Team competitions

Following official confirmation today from British Cycling, Ipswich Eagles have signed three top class riders to strengthen our Elite, British Club Seniors and British Team Cup Squads.

Whilst we were aware of the rumours about the possibility of these riders joining us prior to the end of the season, out of respect for both the riders and their respective former clubs (Horspath and Leicester), the Committee didn’t open discussions with them until after the Elite League season had ended and would like to thank both of those clubs for the expedient manner in which they handled the transfers once the Paperwork had been submitted.

As such we would like to extend a big Eagles welcome to Adam Peck and Brothers Chris and Lewis Osborne

All three are of course well known to Eagles Riders and Supporters having plyed their trade in the SE Divisions for our close neighbours Gt. Blakenham for many a year and are once again second registering to them for local / regional racing. Ipswich are keen to ensure that Gt. Blakenham retain their services providing as strong an opposition as ever when the Eagles ride against them in the SE 1 Division.

The riders themselves were keen to join Ipswich with our young looking and fast emerging talented squad, and certainly will give us that cutting edge and added experience that at times we have lacked racing in the Elite league in the last two seasons.
