The Momentum Cycling team announced today that It will field a full team for the UCI Track World Cup Classic at Los Angeles' ADT Velodrome. The team will consist of 6 elite men/women riders focused on a variety of races over the weekend.
The Momentum Cycling team is led by American sprinters, Jennie Reed with her impressive recent showing of 2007 UCI World Cup at Sydney with a silver medal in keirin. 2004 Olympian Adam Duvendeck, consistently the fastest American in sprints, will be focusing on sprints with high expectations.
Joining Jennie and Adam are sprinters Josiah Ng and Travis Smith. Josiah Ng, a former World Cup Keirin Champion, is often marked by other competitors in the keirin races. Travis Smith, a Canandian National Champion, is making an impressive comeback from a hip injury suffered in a keirin crash. He is expected to regain his form which got him the 2006 Commonwealth games Silver and Bronze medals in keirin and sprints respectively.
The Momentum Cycling team will also feature three endurance riders Ë† Bobby Lea and Roger Rilling, focusing on Madison, Pursuit and Points races.
"The UCI Track World Cup Classic is an exciting event Ë† nobody should miss this one. This is a combination of powerful cyclists, extraordinary speed and thrilling racing. I'm just very proud of our team who is up with the best of the world." said Dr. Howard Marans, owner of the Momentum Cycling Team.
Adam Duvendeck, well known for his legendary workouts designed by P3 (www.p3.md), returns from a brief break from Track Racing after 2004 Olympics to try for the 2008 Olympic team had this to say about the importance of the UCI Track World Cup Classic at Los Angeles, "The qualification process for the 2008 Beijing Olympics is based on the accumulation of points that are awarded through competing in international competition, so it is imperative that we rack up points while racing at our home track"
The Momentum Cycling's ultimate goal is to send the whole team to the 2008 Olympics in Beijing by being selected by their countries' federation.
