Scheduled to participate in 50 to 60 races, including Tour de Beauce, Les Mardis Lachine, Coupe de la Paix, Canadian Championships, Montreal-Quebec, Tour de Welland, and the Tour de Quebec, the 2Peer.com Cycling Team will open its racing season at GP Pont-Rouge on April 20 near Quebec City, Quebec.

The team will include Benjamin Martel, winner of the 2006 Coupe de le Paix Race Series, Maxime-Joly Smith, Olivier Savaria, Daniel Ceccato, Dominic Cantin, Ugo Lapierre, Pascal Bussieres, Pierre Boilard, Martin Picard and will be based out of Chateaugauy, Quebec.

"Having competed on the international stage with the Canadian National Team, and along with the rest of our management team, I hope to bring my personal experience and dedication to take this team to the next level," said Lukaszewicz. "I am confident that our young and ambitious riders will have strong performances throughout the 2008 season which will help the 2Peer.com Cycling Team reach its goal of becoming a UCI Continental Team for 2009."
