September 10, 2007 – Symmetrics Fuelled by FarmPure has arrived in Kansas City, Missouri for the Tour of Missouri. The squad will have eight riders for the last big NRC race in the US, and is hoping for both stage results and a strong GC showing. Four riders are en route from Venezuela – Svein Tuft, Eric Wohlberg, Cam Evans and Jake Erker – who will join Andrew Randell, Zach Bell, Andrew Pinfold and Will Routley.
This is the last big UCI race for the team. The S-Team has had a very busy schedule as it pushes to the end of the UCI America Tour, which ends September 30. At this point, it looks very positive for Tuft to win the overall and the team to take the team category. Although some of the riders coming from South America are overcoming sickness, the team is hopeful for a good race.
The Tour of Missouri is a 6-stage race, which begins tomorrow with a road race that finishes in circuits in Kansas City.
