2007 Team rosters

Honduran National Cycling Team - TIGO

The Honduran national cycling team announced their final roster for 2007. It includes national road champion Armando Orellana and National TIGO - Gatorade points series winner Roman Canales. Also returning to the elite team is Brian Husen, a veteran American Category 1 racer from Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The 2007 Honduran Team will have a strong lineup of time trialists, climbers, and rising young stars. Team Directors Manuel Vela and Reniery Guillen are extremely pleased that they were able to retain all their top talent along with their younger development riders such as George Haimes and William Juarez.

"We were very fortunate to sign a number of sponsors that have enabled us to race a good program and achieve many successes during 2006 - in Honduras and throughout Central America," said Vela. "2007 looks even better. We have increased corporate support because we have demonstrated a commitment to both team development and providing sponsors with tangible results. We even have plans to race some NRC events in the US."
