SLIPSTREAM SPORTS LLC ANNOUNCES TEAM SLIPSTREAM/CHIPOTLE 2008 ROSTER; CHIPOTLE MEXICAN GRILL INCREASES SPONSORSHIP, SIGNS ON AS PRESENTING SPONSOR
Slipstream Continues Mission to Promote Ethical Sporting and Invites Fans To “Get In The Slipstream” with a Contest to Design the Official 2008 Team Jersey
August 31, 2007 - Boulder, CO - Boulder, CO – August 31, 2006 – Slipstream Sports LLC and its chief venture, the Slipstream/Chipotle Professional Cycling Team, is poised for a big year. The powerhouse, dedicated to promoting ethical sporting and developing the next generation of cycling champions, today unveiled it’s highly-anticipated 2008 team roster, announced that it has signed Chipotle Mexican Grill as a co-title sponsor, and plans for a world-wide competition to design the 2008 team jersey.
The 2008 Team Slipstream/Chipotle roster is comprised of: David Millar, Christophe Laurent, Julian Dean, David Zabriskie , Christian Vande Velde, Magnus Backstedt, Tyler Farrar, Maartijn Maaskant, Tom Danielson, Dan Martin, Chris Sutton, Trent Lowe, Ryder Hesjedal, Danny Pate, Pat McCarty, Will Frischkorn, Jason Donald, Lucas Euser, Tom Peterson, Mike Friedman, Huub Duyn, Kilian Patour, Timmy Duggan and Steven Cozza.
Slipstream Sports, in partnership with the Agency for Cycling Ethics (ACE), created the most aggressive anti-doping program in the professional sports world in 2007. All athletes on the 2008 Slipstream/Chipotle Team will voluntarily participate in this program and will be tested over 1,200 times during 2008. This is more than 20 times the number of tests that most professional cyclists are subject to annually through the sports’ governing body, Union Cycliste International.
“We are poised for an outstanding year and are excited to have grown our relationship with Chipotle,” said Doug Ellis, Slipstream Sports’ Chairman and majority owner. “This is hands-down the strongest group of riders we have ever had. We are continuing to compete at higher levels and in 2008, you will see us at bigger races – hopefully the biggest. But the goal of our team remains the same: to re-establish cycling's credibility, re-gain the trust of fans around the world, and re-kindle the hope of fair sport.”
Slipstream Sports LLC continues to seek a primary title sponsor for the team.
