James' biography

Hailing from Levens, a small town in the county of Cumbria, James has built a reputation as a solid climber ever since his junior days, when he won the National Hill Climb Championships. Over the years, the Brit proved he’s cut for both hilly one-day and stage races, the results he earned in the U23 ranks speaking of his outstanding talent.

Following his move to the World Tour at the beginning of the 2018 season, Girona-based Knox took it one step at a time and slowly but surely began showing his skills in a number of races while bringing an invaluable contribution to many of the team’s victories. Most recently it happened at the Giro d’Italia, where he lined out after posting a solid top 10 overall in Tirreno-Adriatico. James played an important role there in the team’s unforgettable three weeks and showed a good form and significant progress, which make him keen on continuing to learn and go for more solid personal results this year when the opportunity will present itself.
