American Greg Daniel leapt to prominence in 2016 on the back of his Tour de Beauce overall victory and U.S. road championship win. As a result of that strong season, he signed with WorldTour team Trek-Segrafedo for 2017 and 2018. The 24-year-old from Denver, Colorado will race with Canadian UCI Continental team DCBank Pro Cycling Team in 2019.
Daniel’s wasn’t quite able to build off his success from 2016 at the WorldTour level and in 2019 will get a chance to once again shine in UCI stage races in North America, Europe and Asia.
“I’m extremely excited to join DCBank Pro Cycling Team for 2019 and be able to compete again for the top spot on the podium in every race we attend. To be able to have a chance at winning races is what I’ve been craving and I’ll be happy to pursue that next season,” Daniels said about the opportunities he sees with the team.
As an experienced racer at the highest level of the sport, Daniel’s will be counted on to lead DCBank in stage races as he targets general classification victories. Apart from his success at U.S. nationals and Beauce, Daniel’s won the KOM jersey at the Tour of Utah in 2015.
“I’m also looking forward to mentoring and guiding some of the other riders to the top of the sport. If I can help the team rise up and grow, I will view my season as a success,” he said. “This upcoming season I’m focusing on helping my teammates achieve their dreams while being able to find my opportunities to succeed.”
The DCBank Pro Cycling roster has been quickly taking shape. Emiliano and Eugenio Mirafuentes, and Canadians Travis Samuel who returns to the program after a year with Silber Pro Cycling, Josh Kropf, Jake Cullen and Thomas Schellenberg were also recently announced to have joined the team for 2019.
