Trott, who in addition to the national road race title, won the Women’s Grand Prix in London this year told Sky Sports News HQ  “I have had an amazing two years with Wiggle Honda.  They have done all they can with me and really supported me as a track rider, but I have decided to move away from Wiggle and join the Matrix Vulpine team…  With it being two years away from Rio, I want to knuckle down and cut out as much travelling as I can and I feel Matrix is the way to do that.”
