The AEG-Toshiba-JetNetwork team has announced that former Team Monex director Roberto Gaggioli will direct the team next season. Managing Director Ravi Rajcoomar has big plans for the team, and believes Gaggioli can help achieve them. "Gaggioli brings a wealth of experience and racing knowledge to the program and will help us to continue to grow from the strong base we have developed in the last few years," said Rajcoomar. "He is the winningest bike racer in North American history, he has won it all, and that background will help to guide and develop our riders."
The team enjoyed several big wins in 2006, thanks to sprinter Frank Travieso, who won the NRC races in Jacksonville and Raleigh and one stage of Superweek. Travieso will be joined by 2003 US elite national criterium champion Keith Norris, collegiate mountain bike champion Alex Hagman, Robert Sweeting (Nerac-Outdoorlights), Winston David, former ONCE pro Ivan Franco, as well as founding member Chris Frederick, Eric Keim, and Serbians Predrag Prokic and Esad Hasanovic. The team will have also have an 'elite amateur' squad.
