French Continental team Auber 93 has presented its roster in Aubervilliers on January 30, 2007. The squad of young talent, of which three development riders made the leap into the ProTour ranks at the end of last year (Said Haddou - Bouygues, Julien Mazet - Astana, and René Mandri - Ag2r) and one to a Pro-Conti outfit (Emilien Bergès - Agritubel), has fulfilled its objective for the last season according to team manager Stéphane Javalet.
"Our mission is to make young riders discover the professional world within a well-designed calendar," he told L'Equipe. And to amass victories along the way: seven races were taken by Auber 93 riders last year. For this season, the squad, with its base near Paris, has picked some regional riders - four of its ten cyclists were born in Paris. Renaud Pioline comes form Aubervilliers itself, Steve Chainel is a cyclo-cross rider and Guillaume Levarlet competes with the French U23 national team.
