Based on its results in 2004, the Denver, Colorado based Haul'n Ass Race Team (HART) plans to make an impact in the elite ranks in 2005. With Paul Esposti of Great Britain captaining the new squad, years of racing experience in the European peloton will be brought to the young team for the new season. HART will continue its pursuit of being the premier cycling team in the Rocky Mountain region while also contesting the Quad Cities races, Super Week and Tour of the Gila. The team will also be fielding strong Category 3 and 4 squads that will be defending their Best All-around Team titles in Colorado.
HART, according to its press release, is still waiting for its invitation to the Tour de France. That French mail sure is slow.
