The Eclipse Racing Team returns this year as a mix of young aggressive talent and veteran racers. The team will kick off its season at this year's Valley of the Sun Stage Race (Phoenix, AZ) which will serve as the team's first official race outing.
Seven riders will return from 2004 to the Cat 1/2 team, with four new Cat 3 additions rounding out the 12 man squad. With three riders under the age of 23, Eclipse Racing will function as a junior development team, masters, and category 1/2 team focusing on USCF races and top National Racing Calendar races in the U.S. "I'm looking forward to taking this group of riders to the biggest races in the US and teaching these guys to race and present themselves as up and coming pros," said returning Manager/Director Scott Blanchard. "We have some great young talent as well as older guys who are committed to the teaching the younger guys how to both race and win. Eclipse Racing will surprise a lot of people this year!"
