Klaipeda Cycling Team will be stronger in 2020
Updated: Jan 3
Klaipeda Cycling Team has reached an agreement with a former World Tour (Ag2r-LaMondiale) rider, Gediminas Bagdonas. He will significantly strengthen the line-up of the best Lithuanian road team. Klaipeda’s coach Arturas Siugzdinis told BCC:” Above all, we hope that younger cyclist's will receive good advice from a more experienced cyclist and be able to take advantage of it in their own development. Gediminas will help us confirm our status in Lithuania and he will try to go for Olympics in Tokyo. It is important that at least one of our riders could achieve that.”
Gediminas Bagdonas (35) Justas Beniušis (22) Venantas Lašinis (22) Rojus Adomaitis (21) Denas Masiulis (20) Mantas Januškevičius (20) Laurynas Kuras (19) Aristidas Kelmelis (19) Rokas Kmieliauskas (19)
In 2019, Venantas Lašinis was the best rider of the team in the International calendar, finishing 4th in GC of the Carpathien Couriers Race (UCI 2.2) and 7th in the GP Minsk (UCI 1.2).
Klaipeda Cycling Team will have its first training camp in Oliva, Spain in February. After that they head to Croatia for the first races of the year.
