    What do you think about this team? I think that's a very good team and a very good thing for cycling in South africa! They are in a South African team, but could run in Europa!

    And their sprinter, Austarlian Hilton Clarke, is very good!

    And for me, French, I'm happy with Michel Gros as coach and Sylvain Calzati and Eric berthou as riders in the team! And a third french will probably join them in a few time, but who??? Asmaker want to come, but I think that is is not alone...

    Here is some interesting facts for you sylvain007:

    There is a poll on the Supercyling site and 1454 people have casted their votes and this is who the SA people like to most.

    HSBC 16.51%
    Microsoft 17.47%
    Minolta 22.97%
    Barloworld 15.27%
    SUB3 4.2%
    CVT/CSC 23.59%

    Another interesting point is that David George also signed up with them. He is a very strong and talented climber and IMO probably one of the best cyclists that SA currently has. He will be a great asset to the team with all the tours coming up.

    Interesting this poll!

    For George, I agree with you : he is a very good racer! He will make a good season I think.

    RalleighOke, do you know the race program of Team Barloworld?

    Another question : team Minolta is a TTIII this year or not? I think not but I'm not sure, perhaps they will register soon???

    Hi Sylvain007,

    I read their race program in some cycling magazine. I'll have a look tonight and give it to you tomm. As far as I know Minolta is a TTIII team but I'll double check that for you as well.

    Had a look last night, did not give a detailed schedule for Barloworld, but found this site that gives in details their race schedule for the year.

    www.teambarloworld.com/calendar.php

    Hope this helps.
