August 23, 2007 – Symmetrics Fueled by FarmPure jumps back into racing this weekend with the 14-day Tour of Venezuela, from Aug. 27-Sept. 9.
The race is the team’s next stop on the UCI America Tour, led currently by Langley, B.C.’s Svein Tuft. Symmetrics Cycling Fueled by FarmPure heads to South America with the goal of winning stages, and the overall. In fact, the first stage is an 18.8km TT which should suit the team’s strong time triallists – notably Tuft and Eric Wohlberg. Following the TT there are several stages of flat riding so whoever wins the TT needs to have a strong team to defend. The entire stage race runs 2,200km.
Heading to Venezuela for the S-Team are: Tuft, Wohlberg, Cam Evans, Jake Erker, Jeff Sherstobitoff and Brandon Crichton. This will be the beginning of a heavy race period, as four of these riders will head straight north to contest the Tour of Missouri, immediately after. The team will do its best to provide daily updates for those following the action in Canada.
