The Danish cyclo cross champion Joachim Parbo has signed for the Italian CCV team. Parbo signed the contract last week in Bologna and will be racing all of the upcoming season with them, which will start in the US with the Excel Sports Cross Vegas.
Parbo plans to keep his base in Denmark, where "I am active in promoting cycling for CK Aarhus," his hometown club. He chose CCV for its strong anti-doping program and its hand-made custom frames, among other things. The multi-lingual Parbo (Danish, English and German), is a political science master student.
The team CCV was founded in 2004 in Italy by five friends who wanted to promote cyclo cross in Italy. This year the team won the Italian U23 event.
Parbo's goals for the season are again the Danish championship, but he targets also the 14 races he is planning on doing in the US.
