VMG racing and ABN AMRO to create new squad

VMG have recently severed ties with Aerospace racing (formerly the Aerospace-VMG pro team) due to "a difference of philosophy" and will form an independent professional team. The Aerospace-VMG squad collaborated with riders from Serbia, their most notable performer being Ivan Stevic, with several podium finishes in 2005.

VMG, a non-profit company that funds developing athletes as well as various sports charities and organisations, have teamed up with financial company ABN AMRO to create what is hoped will eventually be a top-line US UCI continental team. Their vision is to create an Under 23 developmental squad providing training and for up-and-coming US and Bahamian riders.

General Manager of VMG racing, Scott Hirshorn, has a strong vision for the venture, saying, "we hope to build a programme known for its highest level of sportsmanship and ethics for young riders to develop into the champions of tomorrow."
