The Dutch De Brink-Ten Tusscher Mountain Bike Team picked up two new riders: Connor McConvey and Emil Lindgren. The 21-year-old McConvey hails from Ireland while Lindgren, 24, is from Sweden.

Team manager Jan ten Tusscher is happy with the signings. "A little sooner than we'd planned, we have made the next step," he said. "But we had a unique opportunity to contract these two talented bikers."

"I've been following Connor for a long time. He is the number three-ranked cyclist in the world among Under 21 riders. Emil had a very good start of the season. I think he can be a consistent top rider. And I like the North-European mentality. They are no nonsense guys."

Lindgren was part of a two-man team with Andreas Kugler at the Cape Epic where the pair finished third overall. The Swede also won two rounds of the Cyprus Sunshine Cup earlier this season.

Both riders were part of the Felt International Mountain Bike team, which recently lost it's support from Felt Bicycles.
