    Big Magnus Backstedt is the former Paris-Roubaix winner, Slipstream have been keeping under wraps. He's also another British connection to the squad (living in Wales)...

    So that's Millar, Dean, Vandevelde, Zabriskie, Backstedt... it's looking pretty tasty as a squad with big potential for wild cards to major HC and GT events...

    Backstedt has been a good rider in the past but his injuries over the last few seasons must question his use in a team in the future. Let's hope they are now all over and he can help in getting this team to a pro tour level!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I like big Maggie even if his best days are behind him.

    They still need a noted leader though eh?

    Why, has someone overtaken him as the most tested athlete in history? God, he's soooo competitive!
