    Predictions on who the "three Pro Tour riders" are? I say Dominguez, Mancebo and Sevilla.

    I'm super pumped for Ian Burnett! Raced against him all last year, he went to Fort Lewis. Awesome guy. Kinda pissed because I beat him most of the time though.

    This is the team I wanted to ride for this year, but things didn't work out. Gotta finish school, and finish a whole season as a 1 first!

    This is a pretty huge step for Ian, Phil and Alex. All three come from the RMCCC. They're good friends of mine too, this is awesome.

    Great for Corey too I guess, though he used to ride for Health Net. He rode for my team last year.

    For this to turn out well, it needs some money behind it. Does anyone know what pockets are supplying the $$$ or how deep those pockets are?

    Bahati probably could have ridden for Rock again, but after the amateur/pro debacle earlier in the season, why would he? He was obviously getting jerked around there to a ridiculous extent. He's taking a huge risk with this start-up, but at least the future is somewhat in his control. Good on him for that. GOOD LUCK!!!

    I believe Rick Crawford was the mastermind, and he's pretty damn good at getting funding. He's also be doing this for a long, long time, knows what it takes, and wouldn't let it come off the ground if it was just going to collapse half way through the season.

    Hey Ze, good to know you already have a pan on the fire for 2011. Good luck!

    I really appreciate the idea of this team. I really hope it works.

    Bahati seems like a pretty genuine guy and I'm glad to see that he doesn't have to deal with the Rock drama any longer. I hope it works out for him and they put together some big wins on the domestic scene.

    I hope they get a spot in the ToC. It's great to see the domestic boys duke it out with the Euros.

    My buddy got a spot on the amateur team. He just told me tonight. The am roster will be out in about 2 to 3 weeks.

    BTW, you know who I am talking about. I just don't want to say his name till it is set in stone if you know what I mean.
