Buro Four and alinea sponsored athlete to ride with Team Sky
Tuesday 24 May 2016
Over the past few months, the Welshman has continued to achieve some extraordinary results in the hope of becoming an essential part of GB’s team pursuit squad this summer at Rio’s Olympic Games.
The deal, which was signed last year, was revealed by Bradley Wiggins during an interview earlier this month, where he said how proud he was to be delivering Team Wiggins first big WorldTour signing with Doull and Team Sky. Owain will see the current season through with Team Wiggins, before riding with Team Sky and achieving the lifelong dream of turning pro.
Owain Doull said “I am very grateful for the support from both Buro Four and Alinea Consulting in my journey to joining the top tier of professional cycling. Whilst I am excited to ride for Team Sky next season, my big focus for now is on the upcoming Olympics in Rio.
I look forward to some laps on the track with both Ian and Mark's clients post Rio, with the hope to have a Gold medal with me and to be able to reflect on the games and my future ambitions with Team Sky.”
Iain Roberts, Buro Four Chairman said “We are proud to be supporting such a young and promising talent, as it is something we pride ourselves on doing across the company. We look forward to see him represent Buro Four and alinea as an ambassador in the UK and as he continues to push his achievements to new heights.”
Jamie Barlow, Trinity Sports Management said "Owain had a stellar 2015 season (TOB, Flèche du Sud & Le Triptyque des Monts et Châteaux) and it is no surprise to see him signing for one of the biggest teams in professional cycling. He has shown great maturity juggling the demands of both track and road programs. Sir Dave Brailsford and Rod Ellingworth have made no secret of the importance of nurturing young British talent; it is an exciting time for British cycling as Owain becomes the first rider from Team Wiggins to be propelled up to World Tour level. Let’s hope many more will follow his pathway to the top in years to come."
We wish Owain all the luck with Team Sky and his pursuit for gold at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
