Team Schleck

The Luxembourg-based team of Andy and Fränk Schleck are building up quite a significant team roster for 2011. Their Luxembourg Pro Cycling Project team have recently added Jakob Fuglsang (Denmark), Fabian Wegmann (German) and Linus Gerdemann (German) – the later pair coming from Milram who disbanded at the end of the 2010 season after failing to find a new main sponsor.

As well as the Schleck brothers, Team Luxembourg have cycling heavy weights Daniele Bennati and Jens Voigt in their ranks and there is also talk of the imminent signing of Faian Cancellara from Saxo Bank. It is reported that Cancellera cancelled his 1.2 million euro contract for the 2011 season at a cost of up to 3 million euros, one can only assume that he will be handsomely compensated in his new team and fancies their chances of success.

Faces of Team Luxembourg

Team Luxembourg are currently made up of:

  • Fränk Schleck
  • Andy Schleck
  • Davide Viganò
  • Daniele Bennati
  • Giacomo Nizzolo
  • Bruno Pires
  • Jens Voigt
  • Maxime Monfort
  • Wouter Welandt
  • Dominic Klemme
  • Fabian Wegmann
  • Linus Gerdemann
  • Jakob Fuglsang

With other riders rumoured to be on the radar, Team Luxembourg must be confident of securing one of the remaining eight UCI licences for the coming season.

Daniele Bennati is one of my favourite riders and I look forward to seeing how he does in this new team against the likes of Mark Cavendish. The team should also do pretty well on the team time trials – providing they can keep up with Cancellera!!
