The Jittery Joe's Professional Cycling Team has finalized its roster for next season by keeping five riders from 2006 and adding eight new riders.
Returning to the team from last year are Australians Jeff Hopkins and Trent Wilson as well as Americans Neil Shirley, Evan Elken and Austin King. Also returning to the team after spending two years with Navigators is Colombian climber Cesar Grajales who made a name for himself when he won the Brasstown Bald stage of Tour of Georgia in a Jittery Joe's jersey in 2004. And returning to The Bean Team after a one-year hiatus with Nerac-OLP is Thad Dulin.
New riders for 2007 include Matt Shriver from TargeTraining, Australian Tommy Nankervis from Priority Health, Australian Cody Stevenson from FRF Couriers-Caravello, 2006 Canadian espoir road race and time trial national champion David Veilleux, 2006 Sun Tour runner-up and Australian mountain bike national champion Chris Jongewaard, and neo pro Tim Henry.
"We have put together the strongest squad that Jittery Joe's has had in our six year history," said Micah Rice, Team Manager, "we will be a contender in any race we attend whether it be a fast criterium like the Athens Twilight or a grueling stage race like the Tour de Georgia."
The team has a host of riders with lots of big race experience as well as some neo pros. The team will have six Americans, five Australians, one Colombian and one Canadian.
