Team Slipstream
« on: July 31, 2007, 06:57:30 AM »
 A new American  race team is being formed. They are trying to have the team with a high percentage of American riders and hoping to possibly get a wildcard invitation for the Tour De France next year.  They are still looking for a major sponsor but have many secondary sponsors in place. They will be racing in Europe this year and of course at the Tour of California and Georgia. This is your chance, start training. Mountain bikers do well when they transition over to the  ther side.  The name will  likely change when sponsorship is arranged. Right now their image is their jerseys, a two toned diamond shape pattern, (argoyle) in blue and white. Not a bad looking jersey, definitely different.

They sound fast.

Their site says that they got Vande Velda and Zabriski.

Yeah, they are riding Felts, I was only able to read about the bikes and they said they are to unveil custom paint jobs for the team bikes. There is alot of money to be made if the team can be even a little bit successful. A USA team can generate alot of endorsements in the US and really be hated by other teams. For now they are going to be a low budget team.
