new look Raleigh team

Postby ozzzyosborn206 » Thu Nov 08, 2012 17:51 pm

just announced

they have made some good signings in Tom Moses and Blain, not sure if they are stronger than last year or not? Time will tell, hopefully the UK domestic scene will be more exciting with Endura having moved up making it a more level playing field

Cheers for that, I do like Raleigh, best kit in the British peloton I think. I'm glad Briggsy's still there, and Blain is a strong signing. Hopefully they are stronger than this season, Blain won at Portsmouth in the tour series when he was with Endura.

Scully is a good get too, and very interested to see how Tom Moses gets on. Probably time Mark Christian started getting some results.

Lang is a decent sprinter - interesting that RC let him go. Blain is a bloody good rider and I'm amazed that Endura didn't take him with them...

He is, but given they were restricted in their options with the numbers constraint, would you have taken him in preference to Camano, Dempster, Downing, McEvoy, Rowsell, Thwaites, Voss, or Wetterall ?

In uni I was in a jazz band with a guy that looked remarkably similar to this. Decent piano player.

:D Assuming Brian Smith doesn't pull a flanker and enter NetApp-Endura in the Tour Series.

They have a 20 man squad. Many UCI races have 8 or 6 riders per race, so they could probably field a team of 5 riders for a few weeks if they wanted to retain some British profile for the Endura brand
