Team 23 Degrees
(2006, 2011 - Present)
The concept of Team 23 Degrees is to give up and coming riders and opportunity to experience World Cup racing. The team has had two incarnations. The first being in 2006 when Junior National Champions were given a chance to race on development Honda RN01's. They were chosen from Honda's home country and 23 Degrees home country and they were therefore Junya Nagata (JPN) and Ruben Garcia (ESP).
The most recent version of Team 23 Degrees was 2011 and 2012 with riders on Trek Session 88's, firstly Dennis Dertell (SWE) and then in 2012 joined by Luis Zarco (ESP).
