Mike Cuming to join 13 Management’s 2016 Giant racing team
28 Oct, 2015

Today 13 Management racing as CharterMason Giant is proud to announce our first signed rider for season 2016, with UK born rider Mike Cuming joining the team from JLT/Condor where he has been a General Classification contender for the last four years.

 

"I'm really looking forward to racing in a different environment and with some new faces for 2016, from what I've seen CharterMason Giant have a great track record and I think I will enjoy every second with them next year.“

 

Having already had his first hit out in Australia for the season ahead at the St Kilda criterium circuit over the weekend, Cuming enjoyed his first taste of Australian racing for the season and took the opportunity to meet his new team owners in Leigh Parsons, Tom Reynolds and Damo Harris.

 

"I've been here less than a week, but so far everyone has been very positive and nice to me so hopefully I can repay their kindness."

 

After a career spent racing in the northern hemisphere 24 year old Cuming, from the north of England, is keen for a change and the offer from 13 Management was well timed.

 

"It all came about when I decided I needed a change after racing in the UK and Europe. Having spent time in Australia over the last few (European) winters I've made some great friends and contacts and settled in nicely! My girlfriend lives in Bendigo so I thought I would take this opportunity to base myself over here for a year... at least!“

 

As a GC rider, Mike is keen to earn the respect of his team mates and enjoy some quality racing in the world renowned and respected National Road Series and other races across Australia in a bid to reinvigorate his career.

 

"I haven't won a decent race since a stage in Korea in 2014 so to get that winning feeling back is my main aim. I'm only 24 so I think I've got a few decent years left in me yet. I’m really looking forward to getting involved in some Australian racing!"
