Stradalli starts its 2015 NCC racing season with new dream team!
Friday March 27th 2015: The Stradalli race team loaded up the van today to head towards their first NCC race of the season. Team owner Tom Steinbacher, racers Sebastian Morfin, Ruben Companioni, Yosvani Falcon, guest rider Yasmani Pol and of course Princess, the team dog(pictured above), are eager to start this season with the Sunny King Pro Criterium Saturday night and the Fort McClellan Pro Road Race Sunday morning.
This is the first race for the new dream team put together by Steinbacher during the offseason and the expectations have never been higher. “We have an exciting team this year, a great combination of youth and experience, racers who have had success all around the country and the world and want to come to the NCC to prove they can compete with the best there is in all of professional cycling.”
News of the new Stradalli 8 man team has been well received as the team had no trouble finding sponsorship for the upcoming season. JACO Athletics will be providing active wear, DIADORA will be providing the shoes, FSA (Full Speed Ahead) will be helping with the cranks and SAFETTI is providing the team racing uniforms. Needless to say the optimism surrounding this season is undeniable as the team gathered this morning to begin the 2015 season, a season they expect to be the most successful in Stradalli racing history.
With such a high level of support from fans and sponsors of the Stradalli race team, team owner Tom Steinbacher knew that he had to put together the best team possible and he is confident that he did just that. “You look at last year and we built a foundation, this year we added Sebastian and Ruben to the team and it is very exciting. The sponsors have been awesome and the support for the team we have built is undeniable. You combine all of this with the Stradalli frames and products we are already using and it’s going to be fun. We have Yosvani on this trip as well for the weekend, he is an awesome racer with great experience and it is just another example of the excitement and expectations surrounding this year’s team. Even Princess is excited and she does not get excited for just anything! We are very excited, we want to thank our fans and sponsors, they have all been fantastic and they are the reason we are here. We want to put the best products, the best frames, the best gear into a team that already has the best racers and that’s what we finally have. ”
This is expected to be one of the more competitive seasons in recent NCC history with so much talent from around the world coming to the United States to compete. The NCC has gained enormous popularity over the last few years with better coverage and viewership via the internet and more cycling events across the country. Stradalli has high expectations for what this team can do.
