US neo-pro can climb and time trial
Caleb Fairly will ride for Team HTC-Highroad for the coming two seasons. The team announced the signing of the young American neo-pro over the weekend.
Fairly, 23, was most recently a stagiaire with Garmin-Transitions. This year he won the Tour of the Battenkill and was third in the Giro della Toscana.
"I'm very excited about the opportunity to join HTC-Highroad for the next 2 seasons," said Fairly. "This team has a reputation for developing young talent in the Pro Tour, and I am honoured to be a part of such a great team and organisation."
According to the team, he is a multi-talent who can climb and time trial well, and does well in stage races. "Fairly is a great young rider who demonstrates a lot of potential," commented Team Manager Rolf Aldag.
He is one of several young riders to join the US-based team for the coming year, along with Irishman Matthew Brammeier and German John Degenkolb. He will also reunite with Garmin teammate and fellow American Danny Pate there.
