To us, it is another example of the top two American teams working as one to continue to benefit the sport."
  

"This is one of the best days of the racing season and the viewing experience is superb. We at Slipstream Sports are very happy to partner with High Road in supporting USA Cycling in this way," said Doug Ellis, Chairman, Slipstream Sports.  "Team Garmin-Transitions was founded to foster the next generation of American cycling champions and several of our athletes, including Christian Vande Velde, David Zabriskie, Danny Pate, Timmy Duggan, Steven Cozza, Kirk Carlsen, Peter Stetina and Tyler Farrar have had the benefit of working with USA Cycling's National Team programs as young Americans. That is a tradition we want to continue with new programs such as this auction."
 
"Team HTC-Columbia is focused on developing young athletes into the future leaders of the sport. ," said Bob Stapleton, owner of Highroad Sports. "More than half of the athletes on Team HTC-Columbia are under 26 years of age and are enjoying personal growth and success. The majority of our 85 victories in 2009 come from our youngest athletes such as Mark Cavendish. We look forward to working with USA Cycling in their mission to guide young American athletes to grow from aspiring amateurs to top-level professionals."
