The Priority Health team, Michigan's only professional cycling team, is competing in the Tour of California, February 18-25, the nation's biggest and most prestigious cycling race. The team will be riding head-to-head with some of the world's biggest names in cycling including the Discovery Channel, Team CSC, T-Mobile, Gerolsteiner and Predictor-Lotto.
The Priority Health team is one of only four national teams to be invited to participate in the Tour. Managed and based in Michigan, the team features some of Michigan's top talent — Brian Sheedy of Rockford and Graham Howard of Grand Rapids.
"It is an honour to be invited to compete in this race," said Mark Olson, Priority Health team manager. "We feel privileged to compete against these high calibre athletes and we are going to work really hard to make a mark in this race."
