Team High Road will become Team Columbia as of the Tour de France, and all associated with the team were happy to know that their future was assured. Australian Adam Hansen was happy, too, for another reason – he loves the Columbia sport clothing.
"Columbia is very, very cool," he told Cyclingnews. "Before my eight-week racing block (Amstel Gold to Dauphiné Libéré), I was hiking four to six hours a day (plus two to three hours of bike training). Even today, as I start my training, I went for a two hour hike this morning."
And what does the 27 year-old wear on those hikes? Columbia-brand clothing, of course. "I've used Columbia gear in the past and I really like their stuff. So I'm the most excited rider on the team because of it!"
