Dual world champion Sarah Hammer has signed for new UCI professional team Hawk Relay Cycling. As a result she will race in domestic competitions, the Pan-American Championships, world cups and world championship events for the squad.
The 25-year-old California native has won two world titles in the 3km pursuit and is a seven-time world cup gold medalist. She'll be joined by 2008 Olympian Adam Duvendeck, three-time US national champion Jimmy Watkins and Canadian Commonwealth Games silver medalist, Travis Smith.
"This is a great day for the Hawk Relay Cycling Team," said team director Robin Horwitz. "Sarah brings tremendous value to the team. Sponsors and fans like her a lot and she's shown tremendous results in the past with a history of winning at the international level. I know with the private sector sponsorship and a superior support system for the next four years, she'll be standing on the top of the podium at the London Olympics."
