Latvia's elite highway bike rider Andžs Flaksis has extended its contract with the Hincapie Racing team. The Hincapie Racing team returns to the continental level on a professional continent basis for one season and notifies the Latvian Riding Federation.
Dunalok's Flax next season will be the seventh season when a player represents one of the North American UCI teams.
It is now clear that in the second half of the season, the Holowesko Citadel Racing team will be left by some of the main sponsors that have a major impact on the team's financial situation. The Hinkapiji brothers decided to keep the team, but will return to the continental squad in 2019.
The team signed a contract with nine cyclists, including Flaxis. He will stay one more season.
Highway cyclist Flaxis, a 27-year-old Latvian expert who became vice president of European U23 in 2012, has been representing the US high speed cycling team since 2012. The exception was to return to Latvia in 2014 to defend the honor of the Western Delfin unit.
This year, Angie represented a team created by brother Hinckay, who had a professional continental status in the first season. This allowed Flax and the rest of the team to start a high-level bike ride in North America as well as in Europe.
Latvian was ranked third in the Latvian Championship team at the end of June and was the fifth overall Baltic Tour bike race. At the same time, Flax teamed up in a series of prestigious multiplayer and single day competitions and performed very important tasks.
