Colombia es Pasión will be led in 2008 by Ivan Parra, Fabio Duarte and Sergio Henao, and will be composed of 22 riders led by a technical staff of eight people.

Undoubtedly, the head of the Colombian Continental team will be 32 year-old Ivan Parra, who last year raced for French ProTour team Cofidis and in 2005 won two stages of the Giro d'Italia. "The Vuelta a Colombia and the Clásico RCN are my biggest goals in 2008, as well as to compete in some races in Europe," Parra said to the local newspaper El Tiempo during the team's presentation.

Colombia es Pasión is carrying out a training camp in Paipa (Boyacá), Colombia, in order to be ready to confront the local and international calendar of this season.
