American U25 development team CRCA/Sakonnet Technology has announced its complete twelve-rider line up for 2006. Sakonnet has retained nine riders from the 2005 squad and joining the team are first year seniors Caleb Fairly, Chris Ruhl and Guy East. All three riders were members of the U.S Junior National team in 2005 and Fairly finished the season ranked as the number one junior rider in the country.
After the squad's success in 2005, when riders were invited onto the U.S espoir national team and raced at the Dodge Tour of Georgia, the team announces a schedule focused on the U.S National Racing Calendar (NRC) events. Sakonnet will remain amateur in 2006 yet the squad is looking for a high placement in the NRC Team rankings at the end of the season.
