Teams unite to form British 'superteam'

British teams RaphaCondor and have announced that they will merge for the 2008 season, making a team which will have many of the country's top riders and led by one of the country's top directors, John Herety. The announcement comes just two weeks after British Cycling announced it would form its own professional team.

Herety, a highly respected director, has led the highly successful team for the past two years after resigning from his post as national team director. "After working for many years with Team GB and for the past two seasons with the successful team, I am looking forward to working with Rapha and Condor," Herety said. "Having met Dominique [Gabellini, RaphaCondor] and his colleagues during the course of the season their professionalism, competitiveness as well as their easy-going, honest and open nature makes the alliance feel good."
