Tayler Wiles has joined the Orica-AIS ranks for the 2016 after a stunning 2015 season with Velocio-SRAM.
The 26-year-old hails from the United States and will fly in today to join her teammates ahead of what could be another impressive season.
She turned pro in 2013 and last year saw her ride for Velocio-SRAM (formerly Specialized-Lululemon)but as the season comes to an end the Velocio-SRAM team will be disbanded, the reason why Wiles has joined Orica-AIS.
Having success at the Tour of New Zealand and winning the event, and a stage win at the US Pro Challenge, she continued to dominate by winning a stage and the overall classifications at the Tour Cycliste Féminin International de l’Ardèche, she said in a press releases from Orica-AIS she is excited for the new season.
“I have big goals for 2016 in time trials and on the road.
“With it being an Olympic year you have to throw everything you have into training and recovery in an effort to perform early in the lead up to selection and I am so excited to be racing on a team that I know will support my goals 100%.”
She puts her recent successes down to the people she has supporting her, “I learn so much each season from my teammates, directors and also just from making mistakes and trying to learn from them,” she said. “I started taking more risks this year and trusting my instincts and I gained a lot of confidence from that.”
