Scottish cyclists join multi-national team in Glasgow 2014 medal bid

Scottish Cycling has become a major partner in a new women's professional cycling outfit that launched at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome in Glasgow.

It hopes its five Scottish riders - Jane Barr, Anne Ewing, Kayleigh Brogan, Eileen Roe and Laura Murray - will get plenty of high-level racing experience on the continent to help them bid for medals at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
