United States continental squad Kelly Benefits Strategies/Medifast pro cycling team has announced its roster for the Tour of Virginia. Performance director Jonas Carney will lead the squad at the five-day US tour which gets underway today.
"We can't wait to get to Virginia," said Carney. "It's a challenging course that's going to offer us some almost European-style terrain and the biggest climbs of our season so far. Along with the time trials, that's a race well suited to the skill set of our guys who climb well and know how to race the clock."
Virginia podium finisher Justin Spinelli will lead the squad with Ryan Roth, one of two Canadians in the lineup, taking up a supporting role.
Kelly Benefit Strategies Virginia roster: Dan Bowman, Dominique Perras, Ryan Roth, Justin Spinelli, Johnny Sundt, Nick Waite.
