Project 1t4i finalises team with Kluge

German Roger Kluge was renewed with the organisation which will operate as Project 1t4i until its title sponsor is named in 2012. The Skil-Shimano team announced the 25-year-old strongman as its final signing for the upcoming season.

Kluge began his career as an accomplished track and six day rider before transitioning to the road with LKT Team Brandenburg. He made the leap to the ProTour with Milram in 2010, with which he won the Neuseen Classics. He moved to Skil-Shimano the following year where he has been a valuable member of the lead-out train.

While continuing to develop on the road, Kluge will also return to the track for the Olympic Games in London, where he hopes to contest the omnium. Kluge was European omnium champion in 2010 and a silver medalist in the points race at the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008.

The Project 1t4i men's and women's teams are complete for 2012, but the men's status is still up in the air after the squad failed to meet the UCI's sporting criteria for the WorldTour. Just four points shy of the top 20, the team is hoping to be considered for the WorldTour should the Geox-TMC team fail to find a replacement sponsor for the shoe maker.
