UnitedHealthcare confirms men’s roster for 2018

The American-registered squad will kick off its season at the Vuelta a San Juan Internacional in January.

UnitedHealthcare has finalized its 2018 men’s roster with the addition of three new riders.

Eric Marcotte, Serghei Tvetcov, and Hugo Velazquez join the American-registered squad for the coming season, which will kick off at Argentina’s Vuelta a San Juan Internacional, Jan. 21-28.

“I am really happy with the additions to the team this year, we have three completely different riders to finish out a strong program,” Sport director Seba Alexandre said. “The idea was to retain the core of the 2017 team, as we mostly built a new squad, but it takes an all-around team to get all the pieces to work together. I believe that while we had a really good season in 2017, the best is yet to come.”

The squad will travel to Medellin, Colombia next month for a training camp. After that, it will race at the San Juan race and then the Vuelta Colombia Oro y Paz. There will also be appearances in Europe at races such as GP Samyn, Johan Museeuw Classic, and Ronde Van Drenthe.

“Looking at the 2018 calendar, we are excited to do a big block of international racing early in the season, and then arrive back in the U.S. in April focused and ready for major stage races,” Alexandre said.
