New signings for 2022: Meet Xeno Young, Alex Williams and Conor Shunck.

We’re excited to announce our first new signings for the 2022 season!

Conor Shunck

Conor Shunck Global 6 Cycling
Date of birth: 19th June 1999 (22)
Nationality: United States 🇺🇸

Meet Conor Shunck. Conor began riding at the age of 6, competing in local and national triathlon events before transitioning (no pun intended) to the road full time at the age of 16 with the US Junior and U23 National teams.

Racing in US Pro Road Tour events, as well as in Australia and Europe, Conor has proven himself to be a real all-rounder with consistent results (including narrowly missing a podium at this year’s US U23 National Road Race Champs) across a number of cycling disciplines. He’s even done a couple of gravel races!

We can’t wait to see what next season holds for this young talent from North Carolina. Welcome, Conor!

Alex Williams first got into riding aged 8 through mountain biking with his Dad, and by the age of 12 had switched to the road and started racing at club level.

With experience riding in Australia and Europe as a junior, and racing at Elite level in Italy as U23, Alex loves all aspects of cycling, from endurance MTB and gravel adventures to stage races on the road.

At just 20 years old, we’re looking forward to supporting Alex through his first season at Conti level as he continues to develop as a seriously impressive rider.

Welcome to the family Alex!

Alex Williams

Alex Williams Global 6 Cycling
Date of birth: 15th March 2001 (20)
Nationality: New Zealand 🇳🇿

Xeno Young

Date of birth: 9th November 1999 (22)
Nationality: Great Britain 🇬🇧

Xeno (named after Swiss rower Xeno Müller) has ridden bikes since childhood. However, it was seeing Mark Cavendish win both the green jersey at the Tour de France and the World Champs in 2011 that inspired him to try out road cycling… The first step was convincing his dad to buy him a new bike, the rest is history!

Quickly proving himself to be a talented and multi-disciplined rider, he’s represented Ireland at multiple European and World Championships on the road and track and rode the 2018 Commonwealth Games for Northern Ireland. Since 2019, he’s switched to a British license, joining the British Cycling Senior Academy in 2020.

Welcome, Xeno! 🙌
