At an afternoon event hosted by Phil Liggett in Palo Alto, California, Team High Road presented its entire men’s and women’s 2008 teams.

With 29 men and 13 women hailing from 14 different nations, 41 riders in all were presented, in three segments: the women’s team, its under-26 “young guns”, and the team’s elite veterans.

High Road is the only ProTour team to also have a world class women’s component, and with its recent change in designation, it’s now the only U.S.-based ProTour team.

Video clips from the team’s recent training camp in San Luis Obispo, which is the finishing city for the Tour of California’s stage 4, were interspersed throughout the presentation.
