Team Slipstream powered by Chipotle will take yet another significant step in its development, taking part in the Volta a Catalunya - the team's first-ever ProTour event. The team received a wild-card invitation following some solid spring results.
"We intend to do the wild-card invitation honour by being an aggressive underdog, just like we've always been," remarked Directeur Sportif Jonathan Vaughters.
Team Slipstream's roster for Catalunya features Danny Pate, Patrick McCarty, Huub Duyn, Timmy Duggan, Mike Lange, Jason Donald, Lucas Euser and Tom Peterson. Despite being the biggest race to date in most of these young riders' careers, Vaughters feels that "it'll be a good experience for the guys, especially considering the direction this team in headed for 2008."
