Lapthorne and Hucker lead Drapac at Battle on the Border

Former Australian national road champion Darren Lapthorne and his Drapac Professional Cycling Team will open their Subaru National Road Series campaign next week at the Battle on the Border. The team will reportedly be co-lead by Robbie Hucker who, according to Lapthorne may just be the surprise of the tour. Fellow former national champion Will Walker, Tour de Taiwan overall winner Bernie Sulzberger, 2009 Grafton to Inverell winner Malcolm Rudolph and Malaysian rider Amir Rusli fill the six-man squad who no doubt will all be capable of securing a result.
