Carlos Sastre Signs with Cervélo TestTeam
"We are very proud and pleased to confirm that Tour de France winner Carlos Sastre has signed to ride for Cervélo TestTeam," said Gerard Vroomen, co-founder of Cervélo.
Vroomen's confirmation is in response to Sastre's announcement today that he will be riding for Cervélo TestTeam when his current contract expires.
"Carlos was the first rider who signed for our new team," said Vroomen.
"With his incredible kindness as well as his hardworking & determined character, we consider Carlos to be the ideal man to embody the attitude and spirit of our new Team. We at Cervelo, as well as our partners at Zipp, Speedplay, Vittoria and 3T, have long considered him a friend, so we are ecstatic that he is willing to support this pioneering venture. This is a new and unconventional format, but, to his credit, he instantaneously jumped on board and we are very appreciative of that. We are now in the process of building a great team around him and there will be more exciting announcements in the near future."
