Leuchs to Bianchi for 2004

Kiwi cross country sensation Kashi Leuchs has confirmed that for 2004 he will be riding for the European based professional Bianchi Mountain Bike Team. This follows his successful year with Maxxis/Trek that saw him win his first ever Swiss Cup, and despite many incidents of bad luck during the World Cup season, maintain his stature as one of the world's best XC athletes, and included an impressive 7th in the UCI World Championships on the demanding technical course of Lugano, Switzerland.

"I'm very excited about this opportunity. This is a very well established team on the international circuit, with a great history of World Championship and World Cup winners. They have a very professional approach to the sport, and they will offer me all the support needed to reach my potential in this all important upcoming Olympic year, and into the future," said Kashi on his recent return from Italy, where he will also race next year in their national Italian Liquigas Cup.

The Bianchi team will also include 2003 World Cup Champion Julien Absalon who together with Kashi will focus on the World Cups, Swiss Cups, Italian Liquigas Cups, and other selected events before finishing the season with the Athens Olympics, World Championships in Les Gets, France, and the Roc d'Azur. Other team member Thomas Dietsch will focus more on the Marathon events.
