New Australian Continental team: FRF Couriers-NSWIS

FRF Couriers and the New South Wales Institute of Sport (NSWIS) have announced the formation of another Australian UCI-registered Continental team for 2007, FRF Couriers-NSWIS. With the support of the New South Wales Institute of Sport, the team will field a squad of fifteen riders racing the National Road Series in Australia along with UCI level races in Europe, Asia and North America. The team will primarily be a development squad, based in New South Wales, to provide opportunities for talented young guns, supported by experienced riders such as Peter McDonald, Grafton-Inverell winner, Troy Glennan, Domestic Time Trial champion and Peter Herzig, Tour of Hainan KOM classification winner.

FRF Couriers, an Australian, Sydney based courier company, will build upon the foundation set over the past few years - the current outfit evolved from the 2005 FRF Couriers-Caravello team. The New South Institute of Sport cycling program, headed by Gary Sutton, will provide full access to the Institute’s world class facilities, access to professional coaching staff, sport science services, medical staff and athlete career, education and professional development programs. The NSWIS was previously involved with Brad McGee, starting up development team McGee-NSWIS. Now, McGee Sports is a supporting sponsor of the South team.
