Brussels 09-09-2010 | ProTour team katusha will send a Cyclo-cross team in to the field this coming winter of 2011.
The Russians in the future will also build, a mountain bike and Ladies team.

Currently, besides the pro tour formation katusha has two sub23 teams on the road, but is thus going to ad three teams more to ít's core in the near future to begin with a cross team this winter.

That the Russians are going to try it in the field, is no surprise: they have been angling already for the services of Enrico Franzoi and John Gadret.

Manager AndreiTchmil (47) (Picture). will come to Belgium on Friday, so today Sept 10, and tell all about the future plans for Katusha's new teams in Cyclo-cross, mountain bike and the Ladies. To be continued:[http://www.sport.be/article.html]

So the [FOCUS] team up doesn't look that much of a surprise after all:

Quote from [cyclingnews.com/focus-switches]: As a raft of team sponsorships are announced for 2011, German bicycle manufacturer has switched its technical support to Russian ProTour outfit Katusha for the next three years.

After a recent meeting between Focus managing director Mathias Seidler and Team Katusha president Andrei Tchmil, the German company decided to continue its participation in the ProTour, albeit with a different squad.
