The Sonic cyclocross squad announced its roster for its fifth season of competition this week as well as the launch of a new, four-member U23 program.
Matt Shriver, who finished 10th overall in the 2005 USGP series, returns for 2006. Brent Bookwalter will once again parlay his road fitness into a mixed cyclocross and collegiate mountainbike racing schedule for the fall. In 2005, Bookwalter won the Collegiate Men's cyclocross national championship and then one hour later was a player in the race for the U23 national title, eventually finishing third. Chris McGovern and Andy Applegate round out the Sonic squad.
The Sonic U23 program is comprised of David Fleischauer, a member of the 2003 US national team, Luke Brechwald, Joey Rodgerson, and Tela Crane.
