The British based Driving Force Logistics team has reported that it will continue, despite losing five riders after incidents that occurred last weekend (see related story). Tony Gibb, Michael Scherer, Travis Allen, Jai Crawford and Luke Bettany are no longer with the team after their contracts were cancelled by mutual consent. However, the management said it was already on the lookout for new riders "and will be considering all interested parties." James Louter will move from the role of director sportif to that of operations director.
The team says it will now be focusing on "regaining its momentum" as it works towards getting a start in the Tour of Britain. In a statement team owner Nick Collins said, "The goal of starting the Tour of Britain remains a key objective of the team and our prospective new sponsor. We have created interest in the sport and offered opportunity to young British riders all of whom remain within the team."
