Now the year 2011 has started, the cycling team presentations for this new year will all take place in a short period, either just before or just after the Tour Down Under. In this article you'll find a quite original presentation of the riders of the HTC-High Road team for 2011, in a video.

One by one we see the new jerseys of the cycling teams appearing on photos and other types of information come through either with an official press release of the team or thanks to messages on Twitter, videos or others. Only the Luxembourg Pro Cycling Project team (Leopard True Racing) seems to manage to keep some mystery (maybe even too much?) around the identity of the team ... until the official presentation which will take place this Thursday!

But that's not what we're talking about here ... The HTC-High Road team did a training camp in California close to the Specialized head quarters since Specialized is the new sponsor and bike and helmet supplier of the team (the riders of the team will use the S-Works Tarmac SL3 on most of the races, switching to the Roubaix SL3 for the cobbled classics and to the SHIV for time trials; the women's team will use the S-Works Amira and the SHIV as well for the time trials). During this camp, Specialized produced an original video which shows the different personalities of the team.

In this video we find some statements which are definitely worth to print out and get a frame around it. For example, Mark Cavendish saying about Bernhard Eisel: When he walks around in the room naked, all his muscles out, I'm like I don't feel like quite as much of a man anymore or You know, I'm not a fucking animal, I'm a human being you know!.
Another statement which is worth to remember comes from the American rider Tejay van Garderen who says I don't do modest. I expect to actually win something this year.

I'll let you discover the other statements in the video below:
