Steve Skuse and James Whatling – Introducing the New Twenty3c Orbea Racing Team

-

We’ve always had a soft spot for Orbea at VeloVeritas — we like the Basque country and the fact that it’s a workers co-operative; that orange Pro Tour team strip is great; there’s the friendliest of vibes around the team bus — none of that ‘janitor’ stuff (as our chum Ivan would say) and they make nice bikes, to boot. Last year the bikes from Euskadi appeared in the UK peloton as ‘Orbea-For Goodness Shakes’ but for 2011 the incarnation is ‘Twenty3c Orbea.’ DS Steve Skuse and manager James Whatling are the men who’ll be guiding them in their assault on the Premier Calendar.

They recently took time to chat to VeloVeritas.
