Track fixture Andy Tennant has been tipped for success by his new Canyon-Eisberg manager Tim Elverson
Canyon-Eisberg team manager Tim Elverson is confident that newly signed track rider Andy Tennant can gain some results on the road in 2018.
Tennant, who has been a fixture of Great Britain’s pursuit squad for years but missed out on selection for the team pursuit squad at the last two Olympics, signed for Canyon-Eisberg from Team Wiggins over the winter.
Elverson told CW: “Tennant is itching to get out there, he’s still getting picked by GB for World Championships and Commonwealth Games, he has just done his best sprint numbers and you might see a few results out of him [on the road].”
“I think he’s got buckets to give. He’s not afraid to get his elbows out and he’s got a sprint that’s no embarrassment on any level.
“I think he’s hungry. He’s been effective for Chris Latham [at Team Wiggins] as the last man at a couple of races; he’s got his own hunger and desire to get his own results as well.”
Elverson pointed to Tennant’s previous road results, which include victories at the Wiltshire Grand Prix in 2015 and the Tour of the Reservoir in 2009, arguing that he was capable of big wins in 2018.
He said: “He’s not done anything amazing [recently] but he won Wiltshire three years ago. He’s got form and wins
