In its third year of existence, Canadian-based Symmetrics Cycling will be competing in the April 19-24 Dodge Tour de Georgia. The team will be lining up against six-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong and his Discovery Channel team, along with 15 other professional teams.
"We are really excited to be invited to Georgia as it is like the Tour de France of North America," said Mark Cunningham, CEO of Symmetrics. "While this is great for our team and sponsors, it is also an amazing accomplishment for Canadian cycling as a whole. We are the only team from Canada competing in the race and to the best of my knowledge, never has an all Canadian team been invited to a race of this calibre. With our recent results at the Redlands Classic I think we are deserving of our spot on the start line and I know the riders are pretty excited."
