Node4 Giordana Subaru ProCycling Team gave their official team launch presentation at Trentham Gardens near Stoke last week.
The lake and gardens were also used as a great backdrop for the Stoke-Stoke stage three start of the 2011 Tour of Britain and is a local venue for the new Node4 team.
Sponsor representatives joined the team in the gardens and took lunch in the lakeside cafe with the riders and team personnel.
Malcolm Elliott and Bill Nickson will manage the team for 2012.
