American Mercy Cycling Elite Amateur racing Team is preparing for another season. With a 2005 Criterium national championship, individual pursuit national championship, several state championships, and multiple regional wins, the team directed by Hector A. Mendoza has a lot of momentum moving forward into the 2006 season. With the recent loss of Brad Huff to team TIAA-CREF, Mercy has helped to catapult another racer into the pro rankings.
This year’s roster being similar to last, the Mercy Cycling Team expects much success for the 2006 season. The Men’s Elite Team includes Steven Cate (2000 Elite Road Champion), Mat Stephens (2004 Madison Champion), Brian Dziewa, Doug Greek, Mat Ankney, Chad Cagle, Alex Welch, (U23 National Program rider) and Stefan Rothe.
The Women’s Regional Elite Team is composed of Stacy Bertsch, Melissa Cox, Mindi Martin, Pam Hinton and Suzanne Aguero, while Jared Gilker, Noah Singer, Jacob Irwin, Jason Macomb, Zach Martin, Leo Frayre, Ryan Fiddler, Blake McMahon, Curt Kippenberger and Ryan Hendrich are included in the squad's Men’s Development Team.
