Aaron Gate is the next addition to the Evo Pro team for 2019. Gate was part one of two Kiwis who were unfortunately given a premature end to their season as part of the Aqua Blue Sport team earlier in the year, and since then Gate has been busy on the track.
It’s arguable that Aaron Gate has had his best year on the road yet, but sadly it ended in mid-August at the Tour du Limousin; he would not turn another pedal in anger on the road for the rest of the year. The folding of Aqua Blue Sport in quite remarkable and unusual circumstances brought to an end a year that had been exceptional from Gate.
His best performance of the year had been at the Tour of Austria, where he’d dominated the king of the mountains classification from start to finish. He also took top ten finishes in the Tour du Limousin and Tour des Fjords. Since returning to the boards, Aaron Gate has found familiar form, winning the points race at the Troféu Internacional and tackling the London Six day in the company of Shane Archbold; with compatriot Racquel Sheath also jumping into the action there.
Gate joins fellow Kiwi Luke Mudgway at the Evo Pro outfit for 2019 with the rest of the squad including Daniel Whitehouse with the rest of the team so far including:
Harry Sweeny – AUST
Matthew Teggart – IRE
Daniel Whitehouse – GBR

Albert Muela Galvez – ESP
Cormac McGeough – IRE
Aaron Kearney – IRE
