Following a turbulent 2013 season Radioshack Nissan Trek change their name to Radioshack Leopard Trek.
Nissan withdrew as sponsors, although they will honor their financial agreement, allowing the team to continue in 2013.
Andy Schleck who had a terrible 2012 season, with only 26 race days will start early this year, in the Australian race Tour Down Under, as will Jens Voigt.
“Ten years ago, I did my first Tour Down Under and I was immediately charmed by the race,” Voigt, 41, said. “It is a nice race, well organised, hard and challenging, but not too hard and that is just what we need at this time of the year.
“On the other hand it is no sprinter’s race. It’s just perfect and well balanced, that’s why I like to come to Adelaide.” (source: adelaidenow.com.au)
Andy Schleck and Jens Voigt will be joined by George Bennett (NZ), Laurent Didier (LUX), Ben Hermans (BEL), Tiago Machado (POR) and Jesse Sergent (NZ)
