This past weekend, we had our team camp up in Roanoke, VA. It was nice to change up the scenery and weather for a little bit, since I’ve spent the whole off season in Florida. This was the first time we had the whole new team together with all the riders and management in one place. We all rendezvoused at Starlight bikes in Roanoke and had our clothing and equipment distributed. We are riding Guerciotti frames with Microshift drivetrains, FSA components, and San Marco saddles. On the clothing side, we have Starlight apparel, Giro helmets, and Swiftwick socks.
After getting all the equipment dialed in at the shop it was time for pictures at the Blue 5 restaurant’s White room. Here’s the 2015 Lupus Racing Team UCI squad.
The riding at camp was a great change of pace. We had some good weather and plenty of company on the roads. We were based out of Camp Easter Seals in the mountains, and the riding from there was awesome. Rural and plenty of elevation gain. Here’s the whole team UCI and devo together after the last day’s ride.
Throughout the week we learned a lot about our sponsors and in particular a bunch of great information about the Lupus disease. If you have any questions about this autoimmune disease and how it affects people, please visit LupusGa.org for more information.
All in all it was a great camp and I’m looking forward to a great season with an awesome group of guys! Watch out for the team van at a race near you.
