The Leopard is no longer in the Shadows

The Leopard-Trek Racing team was formally introduced today with the riders dressed like a GQ Men of Cycling Photo Shoot rather than a gathering of undernourished men. The Leopard moniker comes from the holding company of Luxembourg real estate magnate Flavio Becca who is the team owner.  Trek, now pronounced "Treck" is the co-sponsor of this team of luminaries from Saxo Bank including the Schleck brothers and Fabian Cancellara. 

Looks to be a pretty potent team to say the least now that Andy has addressed that undocumented shifting feature that appeared in the Tour last year with a healthy dose of Shimano Di2.

In other news, Lance is back for another run this year on Team Radio Shack.  Should be an interesting year in pro racing - all of which will be overshadowed by the unstoppable force of Team Two Wheel.  Stay tuned for more details...


  1. Egads. When I first read the headline I had a flash nightmare of Tomas running loose with a leopard leotard.

    Glad to read otherwise, whew.

  2. Leotard is better than a thong....
