New Track Team

Not sure if this is the right place for this, so if it's not, I apologize.
Rubicon Cycling, LLC has built a new pro track team has been formed based out of the Pacific NW, Project London 2012. We have Michael Blatchford, Kevin Mansker, Dean Tracy, Daniel Walker and Jimmy Watkins. Hopefully we will be coming to a track near you
Take a look at http://www.projectlondon2012.com On FB http://www.facebook.com/pages/Projec...74012335944278 On Twitter http://twitter.com/project_london

Definitley hoping to make some noise. 2 of the guys (Tracy and Blatchford) were at Worlds in Amsterdam along with Gideon Massie for the US two weeks ago

the schedule looks strikingly like the American American Track Racing Association(ATRA) National Championship Series!

Looking forward to seeing the team as it comes through Michigan!

Sweet! I had the honor of racing Dean once in a match sprint at Alpenrose. The result was kinda hilarious. Those guys are on a different planet than us mere mortals...
