“At Gila, the team will very much be looking to get our US campaign underway. This period marks a few really important objectives for the team in 2015. That being said the guys will not have too much time to adapt to the altitude so we won’t be putting too much pressure on at the start of the race, however, we will have eyes on a stage win in the latter half of the race.” Tom Southam said.
