The Successful Living Professional Cycling Team has signed New Zealander Gordon McCauley for the remainder of the 2006 season. McCauley was released voluntarily by Team Monex, and will make his Successful Living debut at the Philadelphia International Championships, on June 11 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.
Team Successful Living Director Steve Hegg commented, "Adding a rider like McCauley gives our team some additional horse power, and experience as we move into the second part of the year."
McCauley is the current New Zealand road race champion and will compete to keep his title in November after the season here comes to a conclusion in September.
"Gordon just came off a bronze medal performance in the Commonwealth games a few months ago, and I'm personally looking forward to seeing his abilities against the clock, as well as his aggressive riding style I've heard much about," said Hegg. "I think his racing style will set a good example for some of our younger riders in stretching their limits."
Ryan Yee, a former teammate of McCauley with Monex, added, "He fits in well with the squad, and I am looking forward to racing with him again in upcoming events like Tour de Nez, Cascade Cycling Classic, and Philadelphia PCT."
