A new team, based in San Anselmo, California, USA is making its debut in 2006. Proman/Paradigm is an elite women's squad founded by Nicola Cranmer and supported by Julia Violich's local shop Paradigm Cycles (formerly Gravywheels) and her non-profit club, Tam Cycling. Their title sponsor, Proman, is a full service Project Management Organization based in Düsseldorf, Germany. The company has been serving the process industries on a worldwide basis for over two decades.
The team will focus on achieving competitive results, but also enjoyment of the process, as well as juggling full time careers while achieving racing goals. Along with Nicola Cranmer, Emily Zell, who raced with Cranmer last season on Village Peddler, has aided in forming a powerful team, with both strong veterans and promising newcomers.
