First Endurance Partners With Radioshack Nissan Trek

First Endurance is pleased to announce they will be working with the Radioshack Nissan Trek superteam in 2012. Since First Endurance products are designed to complement each other, the riders will receive the entire First Endurance product line and work closely with First Endurance on new product development.

“Input and feedback from the riders and staff at Radioshack Nissan Trek will help First Endurance continue to push the limits of  performance safely by offering the best endurance nutrition available” says Mike Fogarty, VP of Sales & Marketing at First Endurance.

The RADIOSHACK NISSAN TREK roster for 2012 has been finalized and counts with 30 of the world’s top professional cyclists, hailing from 14 different nations. The team will be led by 6 team directors under the management and direction of General Manager Johan Bruyneel.

LEOPARD s.a. President Flavio Becca is confident that the team will be very competitive in 2012, prolonging the string of good results in 2011. “In our inaugural season we had many podium places in the classics and Tour de France. Oliver Zaugg completed the season with a spectacular Tour of Lombardy victory and we secured third place in the UCI World Tour ranking. But like any owner, whether it is in business or sports, I am constantly looking for ways to improve the team. Johan Bruyneel is a leader who has a proven record of unparalleled success. He maximizes talent, employs winning strategies and motivates riders and staff to achieve greatness. I am confident that Johan is the best person for our team.”

Bruyneel has had a busy few months assembling the 2012 roster. “I’ve never been one to shy away from challenges so when I was presented with this opportunity, I immediately saw the potential of the idea. We collectively decided it was a win-win partnership for all parties. After that, we became focused on putting together 30 riders, which was a tougher task than I’ve ever experienced in the past. Combining Team RadioShack riders that we made an agreement with for 2012, with existing LEOPARD TREK riders resulted in 42 riders, 12 over the maximum limit for World Tour teams. We worked hard to ensure that every rider’s contract was honored and that each one had a place to ride in 2012; if not with RADIOSHACK NISSAN TREK, then with another professional cycling team. With the roster of 30 riders finalized, we can now spend all our time and effort in preparing this group for the challenges that lie ahead.”
