Kristian House will once again be at the star rider of the Rapha Condor JLT team. After the departure of Dean Downing this winter, House now becomes the longest standing member of the team, having been with the Rapha Condor set up since 2008.
After being born in Kent, Kristian moved to Austin Texas as a child. It was here with the Violet Crown cycling team that he discovered his love for cycling. His ambition soon brought him back to Europe to race though and he has never looked back since.
Kristian has taken wins at the Lincoln Grand Prix, the Tour de Bretange, the Tour of Japan, the Premier Calendar and overall victory at the Ras in Ireland. His biggest moment though came in 2009, when riding for Rapha-Condor, he beat off possibly the strongest field ever assembled to take out the National Road Race Championships in Abergavenny.
In 2012 House continued to impress at the head of a very different looking Rapha Condor Sharp team, leading the way for the ‘men in black’ with two individual wins in rounds of the Tour Series. Always a determined performer House will continue to lead the team by example throughout 2013.
