|Call him Joe: Mr Trek|
So, it's done. Gert Steegmans is the last signing. TFR completed its roster. Few to add: I'm looking forward to see it on the road. So far I can just say that it looks like a three souls team: a Classics squad for Cancellara, a Tour squad for Mollema and a Sprint team for Nizzolo. Interacting hopefully!
“I’m happy to have landed a team for 2015. I’ve been training hard these last weeks and now I can focus on training without having to worry about contract negotiations. Trek Factory Racing is a great team and has excellent support staff. It’s a young team, but the management has a clear, long-term vision.”
General Manager Luca Guercilena:
“We’re stoked to have Gert in the team. I know him personally from the times where we were both at QuickStep. He’s one of the biggest engines in the peloton and he’s very motivated to have a great season. This is a last-minute signing for us and we’ll start working on Gert’s training schedule and race program right away.”
