Rapha Condor Sharp Team Launch
THE 2010 CONDOR LEGGERO TEAM BIKES MADE THEIR FIRST APPEARANCE LAST NIGHT AS RAPHA CONDOR SHARP TEAM WAS LAUNCHED.
Everyone involved in the team is looking forward to 2010 with many continental races planned as well as racing on home soil at the Tour Series and again at the Nocturnes. The team bike has been improved for 2010 even though it was already proven as a race winning machine. It saw Kristian House to a National Championship Title in 2009.
The man that is at the centre of it all, team manager, John Herety, took to the stage at the Classic Car Club to describe how it all came together for 2010 and outline the plans for the year.
"For 2010 the certainty that the Tour Series will continue and the growth of the National Circuit Series means we’ve been able to invest in riders who can focus on that side of the sport, whilst at the same time ensuring we’re well equipped for the bigger road and stage races. The squad splits into three really, guys for the crits, guys for the road and those who can do both. I think we’ll perform well on all fronts this year. "
Next up for the 12 man team is a training camp in Malaga followed by one of the world’s biggest criteriums in Singapore, the Tour of Taiwan, and then on to the tough Tour of Normandy. The first UK racing engagements for the team will come with the Roy Thame Cup and the Jock Wadley Memorial.
