“Oldest Team on the Block” not ready to act their age

September 13, 2017 CyclingSA

The BE BMW team are ready for the 2017 Super Series and hope to go one better on their second place overall in the Masters Cat 1 division from 2016.

Boasting an enormous wealth of experience throughout their roster including World Master Games M5 Crit Champion Pat Marcucci and current Australian M5 Crit Champion Nick Steel, the team backed by Bicycle Express and Adelaide BMW expect a tight contest throughout the series.

Bicycle Express (BE) has two stores in Adelaide, one based in the CBD on Halifax St and one on the Parade in Norwood. Stocking a huge variety of brands and products, they cater for everyone. However, it will be their high-end offerings which will be on display in the series, with the best of Trek, Cannondale, Cervelo and others to be on the start line. Adelaide BMW is South Australia’s only BMW dealership and is based on West Terrace in the City.

Super Series 2016 runner-up Mike Davies will be a man to watch as he bids for the overall title and will be strongly supported by Jarrod Currie who has raced at the highest level of the National Road Series when not with the BE BMW team.

Team manager, George Vlahos who himself raced as a youngster, is looking forward to the Round 4 Wallaroo Road Race, part of the Cooper Coast cup. The two dirt sections are likely to split up the race as the race covers 77km of short, but tough racing. It’s a race everyone wants to win, and that’s what makes it so special and one of the targeted races for the BE BMW team.

The team also competes in the local SAMCA Crit series as well as other targeted events and are sure to make their mark on the 2017 Super Series.

Round one of the 2017 series kicks off with a Criterium around Victoria Park on Sunday October 1st.
