The South African U23 national road champion was also the overall winner of this year’s road cycling series, for which the award ceremony was held last night.
Pritzen’s fellow countryman, Connor Brown, will also be part of the team, formerly known as Dimension Data’s continental squad. It will be his second season in the team’s colours.
This will be the fifth successive season that the U23 continental feeder team will be based in Lucca, Italy, from where it will participate in the European racing calendar.
“This team is going from strength to strength, year on year, and culminated in a world champion this year in Samuele Battistella who now joins the NTT Pro Cycling Team in the World Tour,” said team principal Douglas Ryder.
“Each year we look to this team for riders to join our UCI World Team and each year one or two riders step up as neo-pros.”
He added that 2020 looked set to be an incredible year for the development teams of UCI World Teams.
“Riders registered with a development team may participate in UCI ProSeries or Class 1 events with the related UCI World Team at any time in the season.
“This will create opportunities for young riders who were not there before and make the NTT Pro Cycling team stronger. We are better together,” Ryder said.
