Andy and Frank Schleck to reunite with 2014 Trek-backed team

Let me just go on the record right now and say that this is a bad idea. Trek just got themselves clear of one doper, now they’re lining up to support another one. Frank needs to be off for Christina Watches or some other doper sanctuary, not a World Tour team. And if Andy wants to follow him down the drain, that’s fine to0.

I’ll also man up and say that I was wrong. I thought that it was Trek behind his dismissal from the Leopard Trek squad, not existing managet. My thought was that they wouldn’t want to touch Frank with a ten foot pole and exercised their influence on Leopard SA to break his contract.

Trek has added Andy and Fränk Schleck to the brand’s 2014 WorldTour team roster. The talented duo will reunite under the Trek banner, headlining the team throughout the season including the Ardennes Classics and s. The Schlecks are the team’s latest signing, after announced earlier this month that he would race for the team beginning next year.

“We’re very excited to add two riders that bring the race experience and professionalism that Andy and Fränk both have,” said Trek VP Joe Vadeboncoeur. “We’ve built a strong relationship with them in the past few years, and we can’t wait to see what we’ll be able to accomplish together next season”

“Andy and I feel very similar about Trek,” said Fränk Schleck about the signing. “We have a good relationship and we hold Trek in our hearts. They supported me throughout the rough period I have been through – from the people on the to the top managet. We wanted to return this confidence and trust by signing on to their new project.”

“I’m happy to re-sign with the Trek family and be a part of this project. The jersey of the team may be different but I’m happy that a large part of this team will remain intact,” said . “I’m really looking forward to the future with this team.”

Trek is currently in the process of building the 2014 team roster. Additional riders and team partners will be announced when appropriate.
