The 21-year-old pro cyclist rode for the RoadCover Cycling Team.
“We set up RoadCover as a stepping stone and platform to grow young and exciting talent and help these athletes progress closer towards the ultimate goal of the European roads,” said Eugene Beck, CEO of RoadCover.
“Having said that, we are very sad to see Kent move on.”
The RoadCover team manager Nic White said that Main was a potential player in the international cycling arena with the physical abilities and mental attributes to play there.
“He is a great team player, a gentleman and a talented cyclist,” said White.
“I’m really happy to have been given this opportunity to ride for the Dimension Data Continental Team. It means a lot to me because it was really a big goal of mine to do well in the first few races of the year,” said Main.
He stated that he was sad to be leaving RoadCover and that all their guidance helped him to be where he is today.
“RoadCover have done so much for me over the last three years or so, and it really does mean a lot from my side to be able to give back to them to maybe show them what I can do overseas,” said Main.
“I really do appreciate all the guidance I’ve got – not only from the management side but from the riders and all my team-mates. They really have taught me a lot and without them I honestly wouldn’t be where I am now.”
