American Continental squad Toyota-United Pro Cycling Team has stated it's confident about the National Racing Calendar season ahead, having already set a new team record by securing the top three positions in last weekend's Quad Knopf Sequoia Cycling Classic Criterium. Ivan Dominguez stormed to victor in Sunday's Criterium, ahead of teammates Ivan Stevic and Henk Vogels, but says he's still got more to come.
"Right now I'm about 70 percent," Dominguez said. "I don't want to get in form too quickly because there are still a lot of races to come."
The all Toyota-United podium, which was last achieved by Health Net presented by Maxxis last June at the Nature Valley Grand Prix Stage Race, comes a day after the squad's Chris Baldwin took second place in the Classic's time trial.
"I think the guys are pretty much getting the feel of each other," said team director Harm Jansen. "It was great to see the guys get the fine details perfect."
The squad is now looking ahead to this week's Redland's Bicycle Classic, a four day stage race in the United States of America, where it feels confident of another strong result.
"We go into Redlands with very good morale," Jansen concluded.
