Since the first of January this year, the RadioShack-Leopard team has been history. The US company Trek, which previously provided the team with bikes, has held the license ever since and is now providing its team in the Roubaix velodrome Trek Factory Racing .
"We have an international team that will work hard."
At the top of the team are four big names in the sport: Fabian Cancellara, Fränk and Andy Schleck and Jens Voigt. While the Swiss Cancellara focuses primarily on the spring classics and the hourly world record attempt, the Luxembourg brothers are looking forward to finally being able to start together again. The Berliner Voigt wants to say goodbye to active cycling at a high level this year.
“Today is a big day in Treks history”, said Vice President Joe Vadeboncoeur. "We have an international team that will work hard to make the fans part of the team." A first step in this direction was the joint bike training with Cancellara, which fans could take part in as part of the team presentation. Trek had invited a total of 1200 fans to the velodrome.
During the team presentation, in addition to the drivers, the new outfit, the basic color of which is black with pinstripes, as well as the new Madone presented, on which the team will contest a large part of its races. In addition to Trek, the main suppliers are the Bontrager subsidiary and the Japanese company Shimano.
