How Team Specialized Racing is living up to Innovate or Die.
Mid-January, 90 rider field with some riders on race wheels, former Giro de'Italia stage winner Fast Freedie, and former US Postal rider Dylan Casey. Thankfully for us, Fast Freddie and Dylan are both teammates so when they ride us off their wheels it is not too bad, more importantly they are not only able to talk to us but also show us how to race as a team and show us how to do a lead out, how to chase a break down as a team, and many other of priceless bits of information. To have riders like these available is truly a great experience, especially when you see them lead out your 17, soon to be 18 year old team mate for the win! Definitely an extremely cool site to see. It is even better when they talk to you and show you how to do it and are willing to be there and do it with you over and over again, and that is how Team Specialized Racing is living up to the challenge set by Specialized, Innovate or Die. We are taking those who have lived the dream and raced in Europe, done and won the big races and putting an eager to learn group of juniors with them and learning how to win cat. 1/2/3 races even in January. We are taking junior racing and transforming it from a race of individuals and making it a race of teams. We are taking control of not only our junior races but also elite races with our master teammates who are truly masters of the sport!
