Laura Trott, current British Road Race champion, has decided that her time at Wiggle-Honda is over; as she seals a deal to Matrix-Fitness-Vulpine. The British domestic outfit is a semi-professional operation, but have recently applied for a ProTour licence for next year, meaning Trott should be up against her old teammates soon enough.
Matrix-Fitness-Vulpine see themselves as an academy for new women riders, using the experience of British Cyclocross legend Helen Wyman as a mentor to those with potential like Trott. Helen is not the only Wyman present at the team, Sports Director and Manager for Matrix-Fitness-Vulpine is Stefan Wyman – Ex-pro and Helen’s husband. Seeing Laura Trott tutored under two such experienced people within the world of racing, should hopefully see her potential develop to the maximum.
