Ohio-based Team Inferno Pro Cycling expanded its roster for 2008 by bringing on two more riders, including former multiple New Zealand National Champion Hayden Godfrey, for a total of 18 racers. The growing squad also added a goal – the Tour of Pennsylvania. Young fellow compatriots 2006 New Zealand U23 Road Race Champion Joe Cooper and returning member Joshua England will accompany Godfrey stateside.
"Hayden is a journeyman and experienced leader in the pro peloton, both in the states, as well as international competition," said Team General Manager Chad Thompson. "He has multiple national titles to his name, including the 2006 criterium title and will most likely be in Beijing this summer, representing New Zealand." The addition of Godfrey reunites him with former sprint-ace team-mates Jeff Hopkins and Marco Aledia
