The Boulder-based 7-Up-Colorado Cyclist team announced its 2001 line-up on Tuesday, with four new riders joining the squad. Former Shaklee riders John Lieswyn and Dave McCook come over from the now-defunct squad along with a pair of Canadians, Andrew Randell and Charles Dionne.
The team loses Anton Villatoro and Steve Speaks to retirement and young gun David Zabriskie is gone to the U.S. Postal Service, but the new additions keep the team in good shape. Team operations manager Scott McAfee believes they give the team “the fire power necessary to step up to the next level.”
In Lieswyn and McCook, 7-Up has obtained a pair of experienced veterans of the U.S. circuit, while Dionne and Randell provide fresh up-and-coming talent. They will join with seven returning riders to round out the 11-man roster.
