With the return of Ashley Kimmet, a member of the U.S. National Track Team, the 2005 Colavita/Cooking Light Women’s Cycling Team is fully assembled, ready for training camp beginning in early February. Along with Kimmet, the current points race national champion who has been racing with the Colavita team since its inception in 2002, the squad includes Canadian legend Sue Palmer-Komar as well as Dotsie Cowden and Kim Anderson. Stage-race rider Michelle Beltran and decorated cyclists Rebecca Larson and Megan Esmonde round out the roster.
"We're very excited to have such an array of talent joining us on the 2005 Colavita/Cooking Light team," said team manager John Alsedek. "We've got a great combination of skill, experience, leadership, and dedication, backed up by superior sponsorship. I'm anticipating a very exciting race season."
Under Alsedek's leadership, the cyclists will kick into high gear during training camp this February in Gainesville, FL, in preparation for their first race of the season, the Redlands Classic beginning March 31, 2005 in Redlands, CA.
