2011 was a fantastic year for the GEOX-FUJI Test Team. 31 riders from 10 different countries across the globe appeared in more than 170 races in 6 different countries.
The team tallied up 12 wins, 84 top-10 placements, 8 top-3 team rankings, and 2 double-podiums aboard their Fuji Altamira’s and D-6′s – figures that surely show development. In fact, 2 Test Team Riders – Lucas Persson and Lars Andersson – have been offered professional contracts for 2012!
More than 300 riders from 14 different countries have applied to the Cycling Center for 2012. The 2011 Test Team members already confirmed for next season include: Taylor KNEUVEN (USA), Nat THOMPSON (USA), Ian HOLT (USA), Sean PASSAGE (USA), Geoff STRAUB (Australia), Jannes WESSELS (Canada), Paavo PAAJANEN (Finland), Mikko PAAJANEN (Finland), Sondre THORBERGSEN (Norway), Lucas PERSSON (Sweden), Lars ANDERSSON (Sweden), Mathieu SELWA (France), Thomas VANHAECKE (Belgium), Gertjan DE VOS (Belgium), and Arne CASIER (Belgium).
Thanks for the tremendous support from Fuji, Oval Concepts, Hutchinson, DT-Swiss, TRP, Rotor, A-Class, KMC, Hudz, Look, Diadora, Spiuk, Deda, Selle Italia, Geodis Wilson, and Carbboom. We look forward to working with you again next season, and we assure we will be at the front of the peloton, flying our Fuji’s to victory.
Thanks for a great season,
Test Team General Manager
