The new look, Belgian turned international Uplace-BMC Pro Triathlon Team ( has been formally launched today, after weeks of unofficial news via social media - and the ten strong team includes three British athletes: Will Clarke, Liz Blatchford and Corinne Abraham.

The remaining team members are Axel Zeebrook (BEL), Sofie Goos (BEL), Bart Aernouts (BEL), Dirk Bockel (LUX), Helle Frederiksen (DEN), Romain Guillaume (FRA) and Ronnie Schildknecht (SUI).

The team has a clear objective: "We want to be the best team in long distance triathlon", with the "ultimate goal: to win the Ironman Hawaii."

“Last year, we announced our ambition to become the most successful professional team in the sport. We have worked very hard to set up a professional structure and expert support, and most importantly, to attract the talent that makes this ambitious goal a realistic one,” said Team Manager Bob De Wolf.

Not surprisingly, the British contingent are very happy about this new support to their racing prospects for 2014 and beyond:

Corrine Abraham:

“I am absolutely delighted to be a part of the Uplace-BMC Pro Triathlon Team and I think that it is a fantastic opportunity to be able to work within such a professional and supportive team structure. The experience and expertise that the team have available will be invaluable to the development and performance of the triathletes on the team and I'm excited to see what the future brings for us all!”

Liz Blatchford:

"I'm truly excited. Everything about this team is so professional with the very best equipment and support. I really believe that working with the team is a huge step to help me achieve my goals in triathlon."

Will Clarke:

“I'm super happy and thrilled to be a member of the Uplace-BMC Pro Triathlon Team and I can't wait for the start. Right from the beginning, the organization and professionalism is second to non with big name athletes, staff and sponsors every athlete dreams of working with. I'm proud to be a member and I'm sure that between us all, with the support we have, we can have a great future and take triathlon to the next level.”
