Vogels happy with Fly V's take off

Fly V Australia-Successful Living director Henk Vogels is pleased with the squad's efforts at its first National Racing Calendar event in North America. The squad claimed victory at the weekend's San Dimas Stage Race with Ben Day following stage wins by Day and teammate Jonathan Cantwell.

"As results go for a new team, San Dimas is on-par with our expectations," Vogels said. "Ben Day has already proven his capability on the U.S. scene as a general classification rider and what can we say about Jono Cantwell?"

"We knew he had the speed to be competitive at this level, he just needed to back himself," added Vogels.

The Australian registered squad merged with Successful Living at the end of 2008, with the intention of having a big presence in North America this year. The squad set itself a steep learning curve by competing in the Tour of California as its first race, where Day was the only one of Fly V Australia's riders to finish the event.
