Los Angeles, CA. (Bicycle.net) – In a statement released by Rock Racing, Bicycle.net has just learned that three riders have been released by the Team. Although this does not come as a surprise, it is none the less still unfortunate for the riders involved.
The riders that have been released are:
* Michael Creed
* Caesar Grajales
* Chris Baldwin
Bicycle.net has had the opportunity to interview at least two of these riders, and feel that they are not only great professionals, but good guys. We wish them good fortune in finding new teams.
Team owner Michael Ball is quoted as saying, “In personally funding the team each month, I’ve had to make some very difficult choices based on the long-term interests of the team. All three are incredible talents who I have great respect for. When our sponsorship goals are achieved, I want nothing more than to have all three back on this team.”
Bicycle.net will be sure to keep our readers informed as we determine the future plans of these riders.
