“I am super excited to race in the famous colours of black and orange that is Wiggle Honda,” Roe said. “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.”

Supported by the Braveheart Fund, Eileen was the dominant rider throughout much of the British domestic calendar, winning the Matrix Fitness Grand Prix Series, with victories in the Peterborough and Woking rounds. Having taken her Criterium title, the 25-year-old from Fife, Scotland, proved that she is ready to take on the elite peloton as she finished fourth in the RideLondon Grand Prix; beaten only by Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling’s Giorgia Bronzini, then World Champion Marianne Vos, and World Cup winner Lizzie Armitstead.

“Eileen will commence racing for Wiggle Honda immediately and we look forward to seeing her wear the British National Champion stripes Down Under in Australia next month,” Gilmore added. “Eileen will race the fierce Australian summer criterium season between the end of November, and the end of January which will be a shock to the system for any European Athlete who exchanges their extreme winter for an extreme summer.”
