Kelly Benefit Strategies Official Team Launch Set for Today
Team Unveils New Jerseys, New Bikes and New Athletes
After an unofficial winter camp in Winter Park, CO, the Kelly Benefit Strategies pro cycling team moved to San Antonio, TX to begin intensive race preparation for the 09 season and an official team launch event. The KBS program will introduce the 2009 lineup, unveil new jersey designs and demo the team's new Fisher road line at the team launch February 26.
"We're kicking off what's going to be a busy and packed 2009 season," says Jonas Carney, performance director. "We've added seven talented new athletes to an already strong lineup, we're eager to get out on the new Fisher road bikes and we'll also be racing more international events throughout the year in addition to our domestic calendar."
The team launch will be held at Bikeworld in San Antonio, TX attended by several hundred guests including members of the cycling and local media, the regional and national racing community and program sponsors including Kelly Benefit Strategies, Contour Technology, SRAM, Bontrager and Kurt Kinetic. The event is also open to the public and door prizes will be given away to attendees throughout the event. An invitation-only ride with the pro's event will also be held February 28 as well as the official team photo shoot.
"We're looking forward to a terrific launch event at the store," says Bikeworld manager, Cindi Snell. "We've already received a lot of interest and questions from our customers so it's clear the KBS team has a strong following wherever they go. We're ready to get their season started in style."
"It's really just an opportunity for us, in the early days of camp to thank our sponsors and fans and get everyone pumped up for a great season of racing from the KBS program," adds Carney.
The Kelly Benefit Strategies team is managed out of Minneapolis by Circuit Global Sports Management.
