Posted by Editor on 11/19/09
The Trek Red Truck Racing team presented by Mosaic Homes has announced its team lineup for the upcoming cycling season. The team will focus on a busy race schedule primarily in the Pacific Northwest and targeting BC Super Week, the National Championships, and selected NRC races in the US. The team will showcase its sponsors and riders by once again hosting the popular seventh annual Yaletown Grand Prix, to be held on July 1st.
The elite men’s team will be comprised of a mixture of proven, experienced returning riders joined by three young, talented prospects, who will be looking for a break out year after posting some encouraging results last season. After a year hiatus, seasoned ex Symmetrics pro rider Marsh Cooper is back along with sprinting ace Tyler Trace, 2009 Yaletown Grand Prix silver medalist and super talented Nic Hamilton, and all around strong man Adam Thuss. Talented newcomers such as two-time U23 Ontario Provincial TT champion Matt Bell, Victoria native Dan Skinner, and Bryson Bowers will round out the squad of seven riders.
As part of the team's mandate for continually developing younger riders starting at the U17 junior ranks, Cycling BC's U17 male of the Year, Craig Logan and talented Devon McClelland have been selected to represent the team and continue to develop their cycling skills. Boris Martin moves from Junior to U23 this season accompanied by returning rider and climbing specialist Nathan MacDonald, who had an impressive second place at the Mt Baker hill climb last September despite mechanical problems.
On the women's side, a total of six riders will represent the team and its sponsors for the upcoming season, including 2006 U17 National Mountain Bike champion and 2008 Junior Road National bronze medalist, Leah Kirchmann.
Elite Men's Team Manager Matt Barth returns for his second season of overseeing the riders in their preparations and at the races. The team has finalized its list of partners and sponsors along with a few new additions for the upcoming season and will be fitted in newly designed clothing provided by Vancouver based Sugoi. The team's first training camp will be held in early Spring in the warm weather of Southern California at a location to be announced.
