Drapac Porsche off to Europe

The Drapac Porsche Development Team has been invited to compete at two elite road events on the UCI European Calendar, the Tour of Austria and the Brixia Tour. With seven ProTour teams, including T-Mobile and Discovery Channel, participating in those races, the Drapac Porsche outfit will certainly get exposure to some quality racing.

"It will be a great learning experience and opportunity to race alongside cyclists whom I've looked up to for the last 10 years," commented 2007 Australian Road Champion Darren Lapthorne. The Drapac Porsche team is comprised of eight of Australia's top cyclists, who are in heavy preparation right now. Their scheduled departure is in late June. Europe will provide an unsurpassable learning experience for those who are looking to move onto European teams as they near completion of university and graduation from the Drapac Porsche Development Program.

Drapac Porsche's Team Manager, Scott McGrory O.A.M., will be on hand to provide his expertise arising from years of experience on the European circuit. "It's a whole new ball game over there, but the program is ready to make the step up. Several of our riders certainly have the talent required to go all the way as professional riders, so it's now time to give them a taste of what to expect."
