Excited to bring honor to RadioShack at Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and Kuurne-Bruxelles-Kuurne, Fumuyuki Beppu gets his chance this 2010 season.

After finishing up negotiations last January with Skil-Shimano, Beppu finally got the clearance he needed and is back with RadioShack. The delay may have made him miss other races but the Japanese rider is enthusiastic and hopes to have another shot at Omloop on Saturday and at Kume on Sunday.

Pleased to be part of the newest US ProTour Team, Beppu recalls his training, “The training camp in Calpe this month was great…I like the spring Classics, they’re tough races, but I’ve come from a mountain bike background which does help.”

Together with Sebastien Rosseler and Gert Steegmans, Beppu is a strong contender for the races this weekend. He is also ready to support his teammates after his rigid training on the Classics circuit.

After making his debut in the Tour…

Recently posted from Lance Armstrong via Twitter is the Trek Speed Concept Time Trial Bike Team RadioShack edition made exclusively for Lance Armstrong. At this point, we do not know if the TT bike will be made for other team members, but this sure looks beefy. Most noticeable is the team Radio Shack decals and color job, which is similar to the previous Radio Shack road bikes we posted, plus the short seat. Hopefully we receive more images soon, and maybe another “making of” video.

Team RadioShack has partnered with Hutchinson and will be using their tires for the team’s upcoming events. Hutchinson tires have earned a reputation for being (arguably) the best bicycle tires in the world, and are known for being the winningest tires in the Tour de France with seven titles.

RadioShack is counting on this winning streak to contribute to their own success, and Julien DeVriese, the team mechanic, heartily agrees. “We are ecstatic to have Hutchinson Tires return to our bikes,” he says. DeVriese adds that the tires are of the highest quality and are able to provide excellent protection against flats. “No other tire on the market compares.”

Hutchinson is providing a choice collection of tires for Team RadioShack, including the Intensive 25cm tires for training and Carbon Comp tubular tires for races. The company is also developing new Road Tubeless tires in time…

No RadioShack Train for Steegmans

Johan Bruyneel, the team manager for RadioShack, states that the team’s focus will be on getting the general classification wins, as always, and that there will be no lead-out train provided for sprinter Gert Steegmans similar to that of Team Sky or Team HTC-Columbia.

Despite signing up Steegmans for the 2010 season, Bruyneel thinks that remaking the strategies and team dynamics to work around a sprinter will be too big of a change. He adds that the team has already proven that it can be successful in the stage races, so the plan is to keep on doing what’s working out for them.

“He’s going to get some protection, but this is not a team known for creating a lead-out train. If we have a sprinter… who can win a race now and then, that’s a good extra and very welcome,” Bruyneel adds. The Belgian has run a team…
