About Will - 

A native of Boise, Idaho Will Barta is one of the fresh crop of U23 talent coming from the land of stars and stripes! With a host of international results at junior level Will has consistently proven his potential as both a climber and TT specialist while proving to be a valuable teammate. This year will be a season Will Barta graduates to a more senior role within the AXEON team and we expect to see some serious performances in the hillier U23 races this season. 

Over the years Will has been a consistent performer for USA Cycling at junior and U23 level. Riding for USA Cycling in 2014 Will popped out some incredible performances at Trofeo Karlsberg and Cours de la Paix marking him out as a serious talent for the future. Last year Will spent a huge day in the breakaway at the Amgen Tour of California and though the Axeon rider was reeled in with 1km to go he was awarded the Most Courageous Rider jersey for his efforts. 

Expect some noteworthy performances from the Idaho kid in 2017!
