Team Columbia-Highroad officially launched the 2009 season at their team presentation yesterday in Mallorca, Spain, expecting an impressive sequel to the team’s hugely successful run of victories in 2008.

pointed out. “We hope that future champions will come out of the this team as well.”

The new yellow and white-colored Team Columbia-High Road jerseys were also unveiled at the event.  The bold new Team CSC-inspired design is a big departure from the traditional Team Columbia design of 2008.  Featuring a high-tech, bionic-inspired muscle graphic across the abdomen, the jersey is sure to get attention as Team Columbia-Highroad racers compete in 2009. Stapleton explained that yellow stands for success in cycling, just like the yellow jersey in the Tour de France, while white represents transparency and clean racing.  Stapleton concluded, “We rode well throughout the whole season last year, winning from January to October, and the aim is to do the same again in 2009.”

Following the team launch, riders assembled for a two-hour training ride in the warm and sunny European weather.
