Barloworld readies for Swift debut

British rider Ben Swift will make his professional debut as a stagiaire for Professional Continental squad Team Barloworld at the GP di Camaiore. The event is the first of a five race schedule the Britain Cycling Team Olympic Academy rider will complete with the team.

"It's something you aim for, to be a professional and now its in my grasp, its all getting quite exciting," Swift told "It would be amazing to get a ride in the Tour at some stage like G [Geraint Thomas] did. Just watching G on the tele and knowing we raced with him last year and train with him, we know it is within our reach if we do like him and put in the hard work."
