The CCA is offering a training camp opportunity open to National development team women and provincial level women riders.
The 2001 season is starting and if you want to get it going on the right foot the CCA is proposing a training camp and competition opportunity in Europe in the months of March and April.
We are offering this possibility to 6 women that are ready to invest in their development.
From the 6th to the 22nd of March you will be put up in Limoux, in a fantastic newly restored XVIth century monastery. You'll be hosted and offered great hospitality by Chris Georgas and his wife Fabienne. You'll be asked to cook and cover the expenses of noon and suppertime meals.
The roads that Chris will take you on are around Limoux and are excellent for training. In addition, the weather at that time of year is perfect for getting prepared for the season.
After March 22nd you'll move to another residence in France's Southwest where racing in some of France's national sanctioned races, as the national development team will commence.

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA (January 8, 2001) - After months of preparation, the Jane Cosmetics Cycling Team unveiled its 13-woman, 9-man 2001 lineup today. Now in its sixth year, the Jane Cosmetics Cycling Team has grown from a local junior developmental program into a nationally-ranked women's power. 2000 was the team's first season on the national circuit, and it comported itself well, earning podium appearances in five National Racing Calendar events.
However, for 2001, the team has taken a quantum leap forward, retaining all of its key riders from last season- including former Saturn climbing star Sue Palmer-Komar; Jenny Eyerman, who was selected to ride with the U.S. National Team at the Women's Tour de France in just her full full season of USCF racing; and Caren Spore, a late-season addition who took second in the Manhattan Beach Grand Prix and third in the ill-fated BMC Tour of Arlington- and adding such highly-regarded talents as Catherine Cardwell (from Charles Schwab), Odessa Gunn (from Timex), and Julie Hanson (from Saturn). The result is what team manager Karen Menge refers to as "a very balanced squad. We've got a nice mix of experience and youth, of climbers and sprinters- I think we'll be competitive in any race we enter. And as for the team chemistry.....all the riders are really nice people who I think are really looking forward to racing together!"
The women will compete in the lion's share of the National Racing Calendar events, including the First Union Liberty Classic, the BMC Software series, the Redlands Classic, and the HP Laserjet Women's Challenge; they also hope to compete in such events as the Grand Prix Feminin du Canada and the Montreal World Cup.
The Jane Cosmetics Cycling Team also has plans off of the bike, according to Menge: "Given that our title sponsor makes cosmetics aimed at pre-teen and teenage girls, we decided to go with a promotional program different than the norm." Instead of doing appearances at retailers that carry Jane Cosmetics, the team will instead be doing presentations for girls' groups across the country, teaching them about the sport.....and, indirectly, providing them with role models that they can really relate to. Says Menge, "We've got such an interesting group of women. Not only are they all great athletes, but the team includes moms, PhD candidates, scientists, educators.....a great selection for young girls to emulate!" Gunn agrees, adding that "I feel very strongly that the world needs more females who promote a healthy and realistic alternative to supermodels and magazine models." Team members will be making appearances at Girl Scout Councils and Girls Incorporated locations in both Southern California and nationwide.
The Jane Cosmetics Cycling Team will kick off the 2001 season with training camp in San Diego, CA in late February. The team's first National Racing Calendar event will be the McLane Pacific Classic in Merced, CA (March 3-5), followed by the Sequoia Cycling Classic (March 10-11), the Redlands Classic (March 13-18), and the Sea Otter Classic (March 22-24).

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Jan. 9, 2001) - Eight cyclists were officially named Tuesday to USA Cycling's 2001 World Cyclo-cross Championship Team. The team, approved by the USA Cycling Selection Committee, will compete Feb. 3-4 in Tabor, Czech Republic.

Alan Obye (Mendon, Vt.) and Josh Anthony (Beverly, Mass.) are the team's two espoir (under-23) athletes, with Jeremy Powers (Niantic, Conn.) and Aaron Bradford (Auburn, Wash.) competing in the junior men's event.
Tim Johnson (Middleton, Mass.) and Alison Dunlap (Colorado Springs, Colo.) automatically qualified for the 2001 team by capturing the national cyclo-cross titles in December 2000. Both have opted not to compete. Mark McCormack, who placed third at the U.S. Cycling Federation (USCF) National Cyclo-cross Championships, was nominated to the team but also declined.
Clark Natwick from San Mateo, Calif., will serve as the team's coach.
There is just over 24 hours left to vote.
