British Continental team Driving Force Logistics (DFL) has announced it's line-up for the tour of Britain. Getting a berth in their national tour was one of the objectives for the first-year team which has had a string of top five placings in UK Premier Calendar series races, and saw Yanto Barker take third place in the British National Championships.
Barker raced in France for five years before returning to the UK to lead the DFL squad and says the team's selection for the Tour of Britain is "just reward for the effort put in by the management and riders in the team. We have brought a fresh perspective to road racing in Britain and have been the first British team since Linda McCartney to race consistently on the continent."
At the Tour of Britain, Barker will be joined by Ryan Connor, Philip Dixon, Tim Dunford, Martin Ford, and Ben Hallam.
