Tomorrow starts the first European race in the infancy of Canada's first Pro Continental cycling team, SpiderTech Powered by C10.
Now's the time...
Driven by Steve Bauer, led by veteran & captain, Svein Tuft. He has a tattoo down his right forearm reads: We will never be here again. Foreboding it may sound, but a unique opportunity to help guide the young team into it's first professional season and beyond.
Steve Bauer couldn't believe his good fortune when Tuft was available after Team Pegasus was denied a Professional Continental license.
"It's always been my dream. I want to grow with these guys as they make the steps. I love seeing Canadian talent doing well. It's great to be at the very top level and do your stuff, but man, it's so much more satisfying to be part of something you feel good about and you can really get behind," said the 33 year old Tuft.
The Trofeo Laiguelglia is the team's first race, and I feel a sense of pride as Canada's first Pro Continental cycling team takes it's first giant step into Pro cycling. The young team has a pretty good captain leading them!
