It’s going to be a great 2014 for Trek with these guys riding the competition into the ground. Jens Voigt, Andy Schleck & Fabian Cancallara.
Trek put up a list of reasons why it’s better to own a team than just be a sponsor; one of them was that you had control over who was on the team so you could hire only “good guys.” Wonder who that was pointed at?
2013 has been a really bad year for the bike biz nationwide, but thankfully both for ourselves and Trek, not so bad. We’re actually up for the year (more $$$ in sales than last), and Trek is down a lot less than their competitors. From what I’ve seen today, next year is going to be very, very good. Unless the weather is very, very bad!
