FLEEMAN JOINS KELLY ACADEMY
Dan Fleeman has signed a contract with the Sean Kelly Cycling Academy for the upcoming season, joining former DFL team mate Daniel Lloyd.
The collapse of the Pedaltech / CyclingNews.com team left Fleeman high and dry but help from personal sponsor Warren Bailey of ZipVit.co.uk secured him a ride with the new Irish-registered squad.
"As you can imagine finding a team at this late stage is incredibly difficult and I need to thank Sean Kelly and the team for taking me on, but also Warren for his financial backing. Without him I wouldn't have been able to continue," he said.
Fleeman will start racing with his new team in March and is looking forward to the season with renewed enthusiasm: "The programme will be at a similar level to the one I raced last year. It does however include more stage races, which suit my style. I'm really motivated and looking forward to joining up with the team," he said.
