Amid the smoke, lights and dancing girls at the official team launch of the British Continental team DFL was the news of two new sponsors to the squad. Nick Collins, Managing Director of Driving Force Logistics, announced to the assembled media the addition of Plowman Craven and Associates (PCA) and Enervit to the team's sponsors.
PCA join Team DFL having sponsored the team's latest addition, Tony Gibb, for several seasons. Gibb debuted for Team DFL at the recent round of the UCI Track World Cup held in Manchester. Enervit joins the team as the official nutritional sponsor, supplying the riders with drinks and energy bars.
Following the official launch, the 14 rider squad is currently on a 10 day training camp under the watchful eye of the team's physiologist, Dr Louis Passfield. So far all riders have responded very well to the demands as the team prepares to embark on their early season race programme. The team will travel to Belgium on February 24 for the Beverbeek Classic followed by Vlaamse Pijl in early March.
