Ride360 To Start Tour Of Southland

Team Ride360 will be the name of the new development team to be mentored by professional cyclist, Julian Dean, in the upcoming PowerNet 2006 Tour of Southland in early November, the New Zealand based management team confirmed today.

“The riders are close to being finalised, I’ve been really impressed at the talent the team management has looked at to form the team for this year’s tour of Southland” said Dean speaking from Warsaw before the Tour de Polonge (Tour or Poland).

Dean said that the team management were preparing for a ‘training camp’ at an, as yet, undisclosed location before the Tour of Southland.

Said Dean; who is due to return to New Zealand close to the start of the race, "I'm looking forward to mentoring these fellas, passing on to them a few tricks to being a professional on and off the bike, things I had to learn the hard way through years of raw experiences" adding, "And then the hard work will begin".
