Patrik Ericsson (Sweden) will be the team’s GC leader in stage races with Americans Tyler Locke, Steven Davis, Manny Suarez, Ronnie Toth, Lucas Binder & Ben Bertiger bringing a great deal of strength, experience and focus for the one day road and criterium calendar. Raphael Oliveira & Wolfgang Brandl round out the roster with finishing speed as the team’s sprinters providing multiple options. In Brandon’s words… “We’ve brought on some great partners with our team sponsors, creating an environment where we can all grow together. That’s the most exciting part for me, the potential to build relationships and grow our businesses together, while giving our athletes everything they need to be successful on and off the bike”.
