The Schleck flag flying high atop the Port de Bales. Their fan base was certainly the most-visible at the Tour de France this year, with those flags present all over the course. I’m thinking Trek made an excellent decision sponsoring their team, as it should help make their bikes even-more popular in Europe.
Yes it’s true; for 2011 Andy and Frank Schleck’s new Luxemburg cycling team will be riding Trek bicycles to victory in the Tour de France. Assuming of course that Andy learns how to time trial! The 2010 Tour de France was a lot closer than most people thought it would be, and with Trek’s help (and they’re going to be offering a lot of help), we’re expecting to see Andy on the top step of the podium.
Of course, we were on this one early, snatching a bottle from Andy Schleck as he went over the summit of the Port de Bales at the Tour de France. Kevin knew it wasn’t going to be Saxo Bank next year!
