I've been riding for about two years now and I knew after the first week on my bike that this was going to be a lifelong thing for me. I'm at the point now where I want to join a team. I searched a few teams and have been doing some research. My question is; can anybody join a team? I spent a few hours looking at the Cucina Fresca Team homepage and was checking out the many pictures and noticed people of all ages. Men, women, young, grey haired, etc. I emailed them and asked the same question but haven't heard from them yet. I probably won't dabble into racing until 2010 but I would LOVE to spend 2009 training with a team.
Any insight would be appreciated.
