American Rahsaan Bahati has recently formed his own team, the Bahati Foundation, which is getting really serious about the 2010 season. They have announced Cannondale as their official bike sponsor, and a television show about the new team with partners
Endure Media Group is in the works for next fall. The Bahati Foundation will start the 2010 season with the Redlands Classic in California, which starts on March 25th, after their two-week training camp in Los Angeles. Bahati created the team to show children in low-income communities that there are other ways out besides crime, using himself as an example. The six-part TV series will cover Bahati’s childhood in Compton, California, and will go on to document his success in cycling.
