Guernsey cyclist Tobyn Horton says next year's Island Games cycling events will be "interesting" after he joined the Team UK Youth squad.
Horton will join Jersey riders Greg Mansell and Richard Tanguy after leaving Team Raleigh.
"I think it'll make the Island Games quite interesting with the three of us all being teammates," Island Games gold medallist Horton told BBC Guernsey.
"They had a strong 2012 season and are hoping to progress that in 2013."
The team is funded by Mansell's father Nigel, the Jersey-based former Formula One world champion.
All three riders are hoping to represent their islands in Bermuda next summer.
