The Be One Canada Mountain Bike Team has announced its roster for the 2005 season. Claire Buchar and Fraser Vaage will be joining team veteran Ted Tempany to make up the three-person freeride and race crew.
"All of our riders are really motivated to make a big impression, and they all have different areas of expertise which makes for a fun crew to work with," said Team Manager, Warwick Patterson. "Claire Buchar is focused on the World Cup downhill races, Fraser Vaage is doing a lot of filming and freeriding, and Ted Tempany is involved in designing some of the major freeride events as well as producing the next MTBFilms movie."
In addition to promoting the Be One Bikes brand in Canada, a goal of the team is to help develop up-and-coming riders into professionals, both on and off the bike. "We have selected riders who have a great attitude and amazing riding skills, and we hope to give them the tools and support to really be successful in the bike industry," added Warwick.
Claire Buchar has also been signed to the MerlanDuo-Be One Bikes UCI Trade Team based in Europe. She recently returned from a team training camp in Spain, and they will be providing her with World Cup support for 2005.
The team will start the season off at the Sea Otter Classic from April 12-17th. For more rider and team information, visit the team's website at: www.beonecanada.com
