Tradewind Sports for FBD Insurance Rás Thursday, April 14, 2005
The U.S. based Tradewind Sports has announced its roster for Ireland’s FBD Insurance Rás May 22-30. Leading the team will be Tradewind Sports owner and Rás veteran Chris Harnish. Harnish, enjoying his best season in years, returns to the Rás after two years in the director’s seat and hopes to lead the team to a strong finish. The team, made up exclusively of New Englanders, also includes Jeff Craddock, best known for his cyclocross skills, Colavita New England team manager Thad LaVallee, and Jeremy Burton, who returns to full-time racing after a long hiatus. Burton will be pulling double duty as he prepares for the Idaho Ironman Triathalon less than a month after the Rás finishes. Rounding out the team will be Irish born Conor Coffey, who returns to Irish racing after competing in the 2001 Junior Tour and may well surprise in the results.
