The first of Tim’s new U23 signings is Jim Brown, who joins the squad from French cycling team CC Etupes. Some of Jim’s career highlights include 7th at Gent Wevelgem juniors in 2018, 2nd on stage 1 at Kreiz Breizh Elite and 9th at Tour de l’Avenir on stage 6 in 2019.
We asked Jim what his thoughts were on signing with Canyon dhb SunGod for 2021 and what he’s most looking forward to…
“I’m super excited to be riding for Canyon dhb SunGod in 2021. I was drawn to the team by their race calendar (which is second to none), the friendly and fun atmosphere of the team and also because of the team’s aspirations to help younger riders like me progress into the professional ranks.
“I can’t wait to get racing some of the biggest races in Europe with some of my good mates!”
Jim comes with plenty of aspirations for 2021…
“My eyes are set on the U23 spring races (Paris Roubaix and Tryptique des Monts et Châteaux in particular). On paper, these races suit me perfectly and I am now at the level where I can go to these races to win, so that’s the aim.”
Tim Elverson, owner and sports director…
“I tried to sign Jim for 2020 but he had already signed for a French team. However my feelings about his potential haven’t changed across the year.
“I stayed in contact with him throughout this year and signed him very early for 2021. I can’t wait to see him in some big races.”
