Former US Postal rider and director Frankie Andreu has been named to lead the ZteaM for the upcoming American Eagle Outfitters Tour of Pennsylvania Espoirs Race, which begins on June 24. The ZteaM squad will include two U23 US National Team members, Eric Riggs and Chad Beyerr, along with 2007 Mount Hood mountains classification winner Stefano Barberi, triathlete Justin Lane, and Californians Nate English and Shawn Rosenthal.
Andreu, who left his post as the Rock Racing team director earlier this year, recently led the ProMan women's team at the Commerce Bank Triple Crown and the Nature Valley Grand Prix, is one of the most popular and well-respected names in American professional cycling. He retired from racing at the end of 2000 after a 12-year professional career. During his racing career he competed in the Tour de France nine times, represented the United States in two Olympic Games and once was captain of US Postal. Andreu is now a commentator for Versus TV.
