Dimension Data sign British talent Scott Davies

British talent Scott Davies will step up to the WorldTour in 2018, signing a first professional contract with Dimension Data.

The 22-year-old, who has raced for Team Wiggins the past two years, won the U23 time trial title at the national championships for the past four years running, and finished in the top 10 in the U23 time trial at the recent World Championships.

“I’m delighted to be joining Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka next season. It’s a dream come true for me to be joining a WorldTour team with such a great cause,” said Davies.

“I’m grateful to Team Wiggins for their support over the last couple of seasons, and for giving me so many opportunities to develop myself. I’m now ready to continue my development and start a new and exciting chapter with Dimension Data for Qhubeka.”

Davies won the Junior Tour of Wales in 2013 and earned a ride with Madison-Genesis in 2014, before joining the team set up by Bradley Wiggins in 2016. That year, he won a stage and finished ninth overall at the Ronde de l’Isard and placed second at the Tour Alsace. This year, as well as landing the national time trial title and a Worlds top 10, he finished fourth overall at the U23 Giro d’Italia.

The Dimension Data team labeled him “a real talent for the future” as they unveiled his signing on Thursday.
