Red Walters has signed a one-year contract with Ribble Weldtite Pro Cycling for 2022 and the British-based rider who rides with a licence from Grenada believes that the move represents a 'perfect fit' as he continues to develop through the ranks.

The 22-year-old earned the chance to race as a stagiaire at Axel Merckx's Hagens Berman Axeon team during the second half of 2021, and although that opportunity was cut short by illness, Walters thinks that the profile that came with racing for the US squad helped attract interest from teams.
