Astana to ride Trek for 2008 season and beyond

After much anticipation, Trek Bicycle Corporation officially announced today that it has entered into a "multiple year" agreement with Johan Bruyneel's Astana team. According to the arrangement, Trek will provide the Astana riders with Madone 6.9 framesets and a healthy selection from the company's Bontrager parts bin, including wheels, tires, saddles, handlebars, stems, bar tape, cages, and bottles. "We have a relatively standard agreement with the team," said Trek Road Brand Manager Scott Daubert. "We provide them with bikes; they provide us with race results and bike development and access to the riders. It's very similar to what we had with Discovery and US Postal. It's a partnership that helps us both."

The 2008 Astana team is quickly shaping up to look like last year's Discovery Channel team reborn with Bruyneel at the helm, several key Discovery riders moving over (including Levi Leipheimer and 2007 Tour de France winner Alberto Contador), and now the same bike sponsor. From an equipment standpoint, though, Astana will be more akin to a startup than a veteran team and can use little from Bruyneel's Discovery stores.

Maintenance, maintenance, maintenance.... All bikes need it and what better time of year to do it. Come join us for our clinics.

Do you enjoy Cycling?
Would you like to know how to keep your bicycle riding smoothly?

Join us for a maintenance class!
We are offering classes on these Thursdays this winter:

November 29
December 13
January 10
January 24
February 7

Classes will start at 6:30 and cost $10.00.

Each class will go over the tools and equipment required for basic bicycle maintenance: how to do a pre-ride check, change a flat tire while out on a ride, adjust brakes and derailleurs while on a ride, and do a post-ride clean-up. A question and answer session will follow the class.
If there is interest, beginning in January there will be an advanced class as well to tackle basic derailleur adjustments, brake adjustments, and wheel trues (one must first attend a basic class).

Limit class size to 10. Advanced classes would have limit of 5.

Sign up and pre-pay at the Trek Store to guarantee a place in the class.

Welcome George Hincapie. Can you believe that he will be riding for T-Mobile next season?

It was an honor to have the Discovery Channel Cycling Team here at the Trek Store of Kansas City. It was an amazing experience for everyone involved. Again I want to thank everyone who came to share the day with us.

WOW! What a day.

It's one thing to say that the Discovery Channel Cycling Team is coming to your store. It's another to actually have them walk in. After all the preperation that we did I was still a little stunned when they walked in. I want to thank everyone that came out to the store. It was an incredible day. One that will be remembered for a long time.

Oh wait, that's not Aberto, George, Johan, or Levi.....

Ahh, There they are... the rest of the team?

They were there also. Did I mention the number of people that came to the store. I was blown away. We had customers at the store before I got there for work, and I'm an early riser.

Again I want to thank everyone that came out.
