The Metro VW Cycling team's training camp, conducted in the team's home base of Grapevine, Texas, concluded this weekend. Over the course of the camp, the team prepared for the upcoming 2009 season.
"With the expansion of the team and an additional focus on NRC and European races this year, we spent extra time getting everyone on the same page," said directeur sportif Nathan Rogut. "We have so many new riders, and young riders, that our camp focused on working together as a team."
With Rogut in the driver seat and former Elite National Track Champion Mat Stephens racing with the team and acting as assistant directeur sportif, experience and knowledge are behind this young team. The team has many of the best U25 riders in the country, and after an eight-day intense camp, the riders are ready to begin the 2009 season as a team unit.
