Vancouver-based DCBank Pro Cycling team (formerly H&R Block) has announced that Canadians Travis Samuel, Josh Kropf, Jake Cullen and Thomas Schellenberg, plus American Greg Daniel will join the team for the 2019 season.
Samuel returns to the team after racing for Silber in 2018, while the other three Canadians are coming from the former Applewood Garneau Cycling Team. 2016 Tour de Beauce winner Daniel is certainly the biggest name signing, coming from WorldTour team Trek-Segafredo.
"I'm really excited to be returning and joining the DCBank Pro Cycling team for the 2019 season," said Samuel. "After a rough season in 2018 and the market flooded with riders, it's amazing to have the opportunity to come back and work with Mark, Maxime and the whole management behind the M1 Project once again. I've seen some of my career best results racing with the M1 Project (H&R Block Pro Cycling Team) globally, so the transition of moving teams back to a management I've worked with in the past will be an easy move and one I look forward to."
"The international calendar and number of race days that are provided is one of the things that drew me back to the program when I was searching for a team. I'm looking forward to the opportunity of producing some big results once again with this squad with the international calendar being given as well as mentoring some of the younger guys on the squad as much as I can."

Greg Daniel said "I'm extremely excited to join DCBank Pro Cycling Team for 2019 and be able to compete again for the top spot on the podium in every race we attend. To be able to have a chance at winning races is what I've been craving and I'll be happy to pursue that next season. I'm also looking forward to mentoring and guiding some of the other riders to the top of the sport. If I can help the team rise up and grow, I will view my season as a success. This upcoming season I'm focusing on helping my teammates achieve their dreams while being able to find my opportunities to succeed."
