Fresh from a top ten overall place at Redlands, the first-year Kelly Benefit Strategies/Medifast team announced its roster Thursday for the US Open Cycling Championships April 7 in Richmond, Virginia.
American Dan Bowman, who finished seventh overall in the Redlands Bicycle Classic, will lead the team in the 112 mile road race. He'll be joined by Dominique Perras (Can), Martin Gilbert (Can), Reid Mumford (USA), Jonny Sundt (USA), Justin Spinelli (USA) and rising talents Nick Waite (USA) and Ryan Roth (Can).
"This is a big race for us," said Jonas Carney, performance director and former pro road racer. "It's a great, tough field to test our roster. With the TV coverage this race attracts, it's also a fantastic opportunity to show race fans all over the country at home exactly what a well-managed, first year team riding hard for the finish line can do." The race will be televised live from 2:30 to 5:00 pm on NBC.
