Symmetrics all set for 2006 America Tour

Canada’s Continental Symmetrics Pro Cycling Team is aiming to become North America’s number one in the new season. "Symmetrics Cycling has one of the strongest, if not the strongest set of riders riding on a trade team in Canada," said directeur sportif Jeremy Storie. "This year we have a bolstered squad, both in size and quality, and an increased sponsorship presence, so we are definitely ready to take a ‘no prisoners’ attitude at all Canadian, American, or international events," he continued, confident that the UCI America Tour is within the team's grasp - a heretofore unprecedented claim for a Canadian team.

Following last year’s strong showing at a range of US and Canadian Pro events, which include NRC (National Racing Calendar) wins, as well as a bevy of National Championship wins and medals, Symmetrics Cycling finished third on the UCI America Tour, behind American team Health Net/Maxxis, which is still going to be the team to beat. In 2006, the team based in Vancouver, BC, will not only attack its usual calendar of Canadian races - including the Tour de Beauce, where Langley’s Svein Tuft held the leader’s yellow jersey and finished second overall behind top-ranked Australian Nathan O’Neill - and American NRC races, but six international UCI races in Mexico, Brazil, Ireland and China.
