Clarke brothers to Toyota for 2008

The 2006 USPRO criterium champion Hilton Clarke (Navigators Insurance) was not feeling 100 percent in his title defense, as a rotated pelvis sidelined him for the most of July and into August. However, Clarke's strong performances before that has netted him a contract with Toyota-United for 2008. On top of that, his little brother Jonathan is also signing for the team, after riding in Europe and the US this year.

"Toyota decided to sign me and my younger brother," Clarke told Cyclingnews before the criterium nationals. When asked if bringing him and his brother together was his idea or the team's, he said, "It was a bit of both, but the deal for me and him is a great one and I'm really excited!"
