Starting off as Team KGF, the Derby quartet have been shaking things up from the start and their success was one of the headline stories in mainstream press of 2017. The Derby based track team first came to everyone’s attention at the British National Track Championships when they beat the British Academy riders, competing as 100% Me to the team pursuit title.
In January 2018 they beat Russian team Lokosphinx to Gold in the Team Pursuit in Minsk, Belarus, and two of their members, Dan Bigham and Charlie Tanfield gained selection for Great Britain at the world championships in Apeldoorn.
For the 2019 season, a new incarnation in the name of Hubb Wattbike was formed. Largely due to their worldwide success, the nucleus of the team of Dan Bigham, Jonny Wale had been joined by the Scottish rider John Archibald, and Charlie Tanfield standing in for brother Harry due to his signing to Katusha, and a host of sponsors, buoyed by the teams success. Their aim is to break the World Pursuit record while retaining the ethics and make-up of the team.
