Taylor Phinney has joined his Trek-Livestrong teammates for their first pre-season training camp, alongside Lance Armstrong and Levi Leipheimer’s team RadioShack. Phinney says that the training camp was one of the “biggest training weeks he’s ever done.” “I’m really excited about the team camp. I think it’s going to be a really good time. There’ll be a lot of meetings and it will be good to get to know all of the new guys. They’re from all over the world and from what Axel’s told me they’re good guys and strong riders.

Australia’s Timothy Roe had a successful season this year riding with Savings and Loans, which has opened up several opportunities for 2010. The 20-year-old from Glenelg, South Australia, has accepted an offer from Trek-Livestrong for the 23 and under squad. “Signing with Livestrong wasn’t as easy as it seemed as I had other good offers that needed a lot of thought. But in the end I felt that the professional support from Lance and his team, especially with Axel Merckx as the director sportif, was too good a opportunity to miss,” says Roe. Roe is set to meet with his 2010 teammates at the Trek-Livestrong training camp next month in the US. “I am looking forward to meeting all the guys and Axel, maybe even Lance,” he says. “I am really looking forward to doing a proper race program next year and racing the…
