Team 23 Degrees
2006 - 2012
The concept of Team 23 Degrees is to give up and coming riders an opportunity to experience World Cup racing. The team has had two incarnations so far. 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, so they were therefore Junya Nagata (JPN) and Rubén 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 he was joined in 2012 Luis Zarco (ESP).
