EF Pro Cycling have announced the signing of 24-year-old Will Barta, who made a splash during this year's Vuelta a España when he looked set to win the stage 13 individual time trial to Mirador de Ézaro until Primož Roglič beat him by a single second.

Barta was part of the soon-to-be-defunct CCC Team for the past two seasons after coming up through Axel Merckx's Hagens Berman-Axeon and the US national team, where he raced with current EF riders Logan Owen, Ruben Guerreiro and Neilson Powless.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
