The UnitedHealthcare Pro Continental team announced the signing of three young riders on Thursday to bolster its men’s team for 2016: Daniel Eaton, Ty Magner, and Daniel Jaramillo.
Eaton, 22, transfers from Contentental team Axeon after a season that saw him win the U.S. under-23 national time trial championship and place 10th at the world TT championships in the U23 category. “I am beyond excited and honored to have signed with such a prestigious program as the UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling Team for 2016 and 2017. I hope over the next two seasons I can live up to the incredible opportunity I have been given,” he said.
Magner, 24, is also a young American making the jump up from a Continental team. He raced for the Hincapie team for four years and made his mark as a sprinter, winning the Sunny King Criterium and stage 4 of the Cascade Cycling Classic in 2015. “Signing with Team UnitedHealthcare for the 2016-2017 seasons could not have come at a better time in my career. After talking with the UnitedHealthcare team management, our goals aligned perfectly. At 24, I’m feeling reinvigorated like never before, and I’m excited to take the confidence I have in criteriums to more of the stateside and international stage races with the UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling Team.”
The third and final addition is Jaramillo, 24, who transfers from the Jamis-Hagens Bermans squad. The Colombian is known for his talents on the climbs, which earned him two stage wins at the 2014 Tour of the Gila, and second overall in the 2015 edition of the climber-friendly New Mexico race.
These three up-and-comers will join a roster highlighted by reigning U.S. national champion Matthew Busche, who recently announced he will ride for UnitedHealthcare in 2016.
