“I’m really excited to join this new and well supported programme as I begin my long term preparation for the London Olympics in 2012,” Liam said.

The three riders will compete on Trek’s Top Fuel 9.9 SSL OCLV carbon frame.

Liam said: “The new bike is phenomenal and I’m convinced that my training, coupled with the support of the team, will see my results continue to improve as they have been for the last half of the 2008 season. I’m also excited to have the Flueckiger brothers as team mates, we’ll make a strong team.”
