Team Group Health/Sound Velo, based out of Seattle, Washington, has been named USA Cycling's 2004 Women's Club of the Year. The Team won the award with a combination of top results, community involvement and contribution to the sport.
Team Group Health accumulated over 212 top ten finishes with over 30 victories in 2004 alone, including the NORBA 24 Hour Elite Women's National Championship. In addition to the team's results, it has made significant contributions to the Northwest cycling scene over the years by attracting more women to the sport and developing new racers through programs, race clinics and events such as the Marymoor Velodrome, Northwest Women's Cycling and the Northwest Women's Race Series.
"We're really excited about this award," says Danielle Crandall, Team Group Health President. "We're continuing to develop bicycle racing for women in our region and promote cycling and healthy lifestyles. Being recognized for our contributions is just such an honour!"
