Team Type 1, Kelly Benefit Strategies/Medifast for US PRO

Teams will line up for the United States' professional national championship races this weekend in Greenville, South Carolina in search of the covered stars and stripes jerseys in the time trial and road race. Team Type 1 and the Kelly Benefit Strategies/Medifast squads will face off against the powerhouse teams Garmin-Chipotle, Bissell, BMC and Health Net, but have vowed not to curtail their aggressive style in this strong field.

Team Type 1 Assistant Sport Director Vasili Davidenko thinks four of his riders will have a good chance at the win. Last year Shawn Milne and Chris Jones placed sixth and ninth, respectively and will be protected riders. "Dan (Holt) and Ian (MacGregor) have also shown excellent form lately (so) they have to be protected up to a point too," Davidenko said. "But to win, we have to race aggressively. We can't wait until the end."
