“I’m excited to have IFS join our team this season and having known Graeme since I started my road racing career, I know that he values young up-and-coming riders and exciting racing. We share the same mentality when it comes to running a team as he has still an active role in road racing management. The IFS brand is a successful global brand and I know that our team and riders are proud to be associated with IFS Global Logistics.”
