Flexpoint welcomes new base and new riders

Riders, helpers and management of top Dutch-based team Buitenpoort-Flexpoint gathered in Haaren last weekend, which will be their new base in 2007.

The social gathering welcomed new riders Loes Markerink, Iris Slappendel, Mie Lacota and Trine Schmidt, with the entire team present except for Amber Neben, Susanne Ljungskog and Luise Keller. During a visit to neighbouring Huybergen on Saturday, where the European cyclo-cross championships were being held, the team took the opportunity to watch their riders Loes Gunnewijk and Britt Jochems compete.

On Sunday, a training ride of three hours was on the cards, before relaxing the rest of the day. The team's first official training camp will be held next year on the Spanish island of Mallorca, from February 3-10.
