Matthew Oliveira will race for the top junior development cycling team in the United States at the four-day Green Mountain Stage Race in Vermont next month.
Oliveira has been invited to represent Hot Tubes after his superb performances at the Commonwealth Youth Games in Nassau, Bahamas, last month where he won gold in the time-trial and bronze in the road race.
The 17-year-old, who competed at the Green Mountain race for Bermuda last year, said he is thrilled to be able to don the team’s eye-catching sky blue kit and race alongside some of the best junior riders in the US.
“I discovered Hot Tubes last year after their dominating junior performances [in Vermont] where they won several stages and the overall title,” said Oliveira, who will race from September 1 to 4.
“They have some of the top juniors in America and I’m so excited to be able to race with them as a team in the same kit!”
