Posted by Editoress on 11/4/10
The Trek Red Truck p/b Mosaic Homes team is proud to announce that two of its riders have signed pro contracts for the upcoming 2011 racing season. After only four years of riding, two of which were spent with TRTR, 25-year-old Nick Hamilton has signed a contract with the US based Jelly Belly Professional Cycling Team, and 20-year-old Leah Kirchmann has been selected to ride with US based Colavita / Baci Women's Cycling Team p/b Cooking Light alongside Cath Cheatley, the 2010 NRC Champion.
Due the team's success, and with many of its former riders now riding with US Pro teams, management has been inundated with rider resumes from across Canada and has recently finalized its roster for 2011. Joining the majority of returning members, the team is pleased to announce the addition of the following riders: Marcel Aarden, Cody Canning, Karlee Gendron, Andrea Hannos, Julia Garnet and Masters riders Rory McAdam, and Chris Barth.
The Team is also pleased to announce the addition of Comor - Go Play Outside as a sponsor. The company has three retail locations in Vancouver, Burnaby, and Whistler.
Team Director Steve Engh commented, "We are delighted that our top riders from last year have been chosen to ride with very successful US pro teams for next year. They were a pleasure to have in our program and they have both worked hard to achieve their goals, and we wish them all the best in their pro cycling careers and future endeavours. We are also very excited to be working with General Manager Paul Player and Comor - Go Play Outside to promote a healthy, active lifestyle in the community."
