Keven Lacombe, a newly signed 22 year-old Canadian talent, will be among the riders on the Kelly Benefit Strategies/Medifast pro cycling team at the Tour de Toona in his very first outing with the team July 23-29.
Lacombe will be joined by Martin Gilbert, winner of the Pan Am Championships road race and a second place podium finisher in stage two of last Month's Nature Valley Grand Prix. Also in the squad is Dominique Perras, who finished third in the Canadian national road race championship in the road race, and Dan Bowman, who took second place overall at the Tour of Virginia in April.
LaCombe suffered a broken femur in late 2006 but has made a rapid comeback, taking a third place podium in stage 4b of the Tour de Beauce last month. He finished first in a stage of the Six Days of Berlin UIV-CUP in Berlin, Germany, first in a stage of the six days of Copenhagen UIV-CUP, Denmark and took top ten places in the criteriums of the NRC Sequoia Classic, the NRC Merco Credit Union Classic, and the NRC Redlands Classic in California.
