Also the fact that most riders are given the possibility to try their limits and the chance to try and race for a result makes me sure it will good environment for me. I had good contact with the management who’s very positive and believes i can fit in to the team and that I still have a lot of potential to get out of me. Also it’s an important year with the Olympics coming up, and it’s a major goal for me to try and qualify to, which they also been very understanding about.
