Introducing Leopard Trek

Team Edition Madone 6.9 SSL

Trek has just announced co-sponsorship of Team Leopard Trek– the world’s #1 ranked road racing team!  This is pretty exciting.  This new team includes top racing athletes Cancellera, Voight, and O’Grady!   Those are some pretty heavy names but here is the best part, the team also includes the Schleck Brothers!  My heart just skipped a beat, how about yours? Having the Schlecks on Trek’s….well, that is just really cool.

Enthusiasm for the Schlecks comes from all ages. Girl on the Col de Tourmalet

Yes, I can say I have a little crush on those boys, but who wouldn’t?  Not only are they both amazingly gifted cyclists, they are also (at least in my mind) the epitome of what professional cyclists should be.  They are both gracious, respectable, and passionate about winning.   Last years Tour de France says it all.  Andy Schleck had some bad breaks (including not having Frank by his side)  and he probably could have won the Tour.  Yet, he came in second place holding his head high and was gracious about a defeat that other racers may have been less accepting of.    I am really excited to see what these boys can do with such a great team.  I am also thrilled to see them on the best bikes in the world.  Not much can stop them now.
