New David Bowie cover version: The Spiders from Toronto.
Canada’s Team SpiderTech just finished their training camp and team presentation. They’ve added firepower with the signings of RadioShack’s Bjorn Selander and HTC-Highroad’s Caleb Fairly for the upcoming season. That means a lot more of that blue tape being wound around legs and arms.
Last season was a good one for the Pro Conti squad and they’re looking to build on those results by racing in both North American and Europe. “Pro cycling is a business and strong riders have options to sign with various teams. All teams must market themselves to riders to attract top talent,” said team co-founder and manager Steve Bauer. “I am thrilled that we were able to recruit Caleb Fairly and Bjorn Selander. These riders bring a wealth of international experience and impressive racing resumes.”
The off-season is a time of boundless optimism for riders and teams. Still, we leave it to Lucas Euser to give perhaps the best summation of goals for the 2012 season. Quoting a popular kids cartoon, he tweeted: “What are you going to do today, Brain?” “The same thing we do every day, Pinky. Try to take over the world!”
Twisted Spoke wishes SpiderTech the best in their quest for World Domination.
