"If you look at the way Ryan, Eli and Jeremy are riding at the moment, we should be back in the hunt for a victory," said DeCoster in a statement. "The track we will be racing at suits our style, and all the riders are talented and on good equipment. Also, all of these riders want to be here, and compete for their country. That's what we want in a team."
