It must be quite exciting times over at the One Pro Cycling headquarters. First the British outfit announced its acceptance by the UCI into the Pro Continental division, which allows it to gain wildcard access to the Tour de France.

Then came the news that Verve would be supplying the team with InfoCranks for training and racing. As if that wasn’t enough new toys to play with, it has announced that from January 1st 2016, One Pro Cycling will be racing on Factor bikes.

This is the first time that Factor bikes will be raced in the professional ranks and it’s all down to a new generation of UCI-legal models – the Factor One, the Factor O2, and the Factor One-S. Thanks to Factor owning its own factory, this new sponsorship deal allows team feedback to directly influence the development of the next generation of Factor bikes.

Baden Cooke, co-owner of Factor, said: ‘Here at Factor Bikes, we are very proud of our partnership with ONE Pro Cycling and hope to grow with them all the way to the top of professional cycling. ONE Pro Cycling has a fresh, high tech and thorough approach to everything that it does, which is in line with Factor Bikes’ core values.

With Factor Bikes’ obvious British DNA, we think that ONE Pro Cycling is the perfect fit and cannot wait to see our bikes in the Pro peloton. Ever since meeting Matt Prior and hearing about his vision and ambitions for his team, we knew that we had to be a part of this journey.’

Matt Prior, founder and CEO of One Pro Cycling, said: ‘Right from the beginning of our relationship with Factor Bikes it was clear that our values and ambitions were the same. As a British team, we’re very proud to be partnering with a new and exciting British bike brand. The ability to work with Factor Bikes to develop equipment which will give us a performance edge is a unique opportunity that will help One Pro Cycling reach the top level of the sport.’
