After two seasons with Team Hitec Products, in September 2016 Cylance Pro Cycling announced that Wild would join them for the 2017 season.[5]

In October 2017, one day after the 2017 UEC European Track Championships in Berlin where Wild won gold at the elimination race, Wiggle High5 announced that Wild would join them for the 2018 season.[6]
