John Archibald – Racing with Contador’s EOLO-Kometa squad in 2021

“The names Ivan Basso and Alberto Contador are very influential names to have behind the team."


There was never any doubt about Scotsman John Archibald’s talent; but we must lay aside UK results in the context of international racing, they simply don’t count with European team management. 

But some of the world’s fastest-ever pursuit times and a Worlds Time Trial Championship top 15 finish are a much more interesting prospect however.

It’s an ageist sport though; the minute a rider leaves the u23 ranks his chances of a pro contract diminish and continue to become ever more remote as his 23rd birthday recedes into the past.
