Laura Trott Signs for Matrix Vulpine

Laura Trott announces her plans for 2015 as she prepares to move to Matrix Vulpine

Double Olympic champion Laura Trott has signed to the Matrix Vulpine team for 2015 where she will take the role as lead cyclist. The 22-year-old will leave Wiggle Honda with whom she has ridden with for the past two seasons.

The move comes as a surprise to many as she will be moving from one of the largest professional women’s outfits to a semi-professional team. Although Matrix Vulpine will find out in November if its bid to the UCI for professional standing will be accepted (we have a strong feeling it will be).

Speaking to the BBC, Trott said her decision was partially based on her passion for the development of cycling: “I want to be part of developing young cyclists. It can be really difficult for young girls to get into the sport and what the teams has done to develop cycling is fantastic.”

Trott’s former GB teammates Dani King, Lizzie Armitstead and Joanna Rowsell all spent time on the Matrix Vulpine team in their younger years developing their cycling.

Trott’s first major event for Matrix Vulpine will most likely be the Women’s Tour in May 2015.
