Slipstream-Chipotle Presented by H30:

Still the youngest professional continental team, Team Slipstream/Chipotle presented by H3O looks to 2008 with the goal of being the best truly American team on the international cycling scene and one of the best teams in the world. In Georgia, look for extremely aggressive riding, the Best Young Rider jersey, stage wins, and, for the first time, a real run at the overall victory from this unique group of young professionals. With such Tour de France veterans as Magnus Bäckstedt, Julian Dean, David Millar, Christian Vande Velde and Dave Zabriskie on the squad, Slipstream-Chipotle appears to be the American power house team this year. Also look out for former Discovery Channel riders Tom Danielson and Trent Lowe. The team, based out of Colorado, is sponsored by Slipstream Sports LLC - a progressive sport management company dedicated to promoting the ethical growth of American Cycling, Chipotle - a restaurant that serves gourmet burritos and tacos, and H30 - an athlete representation firm.
