After a three-year hiatus, the Schroeder Iron Corporation is sponsoring an elite cycling team. With experience running the successful Schroeder Iron Pro Cycling Team, the company's President and CEO, Frank Schroeder, is approaching this effort with a slightly different emphasis.
The new team will be populated by talented elite masters rather than pro racers. Schroeder's intent is to develop a team that can give back to the sport by mentoring younger, less experienced riders. "There's been so much negativity in the cycling world lately," says Schroeder, "We're really proud to be doing something positive for the sport." The team will also donate all of its winnings to the development of the Southern California Velo Junior Squad.
The Schroeder Iron talent pool includes doctors, business and medical professionals, government officials, and business owners. The roster includes both current and past national and state champions. In other words, this team is comprised of people who are successful both on and off the bike, the kind of people ideally positioned to help young riders find success in the sport of cycling and in life.
