After riding under the names of a few different shops over the past 12 seasons, the Titletown Flyers of Green Bay, Wisconsin, are set to hit the dirt with a new look and much larger roster. Just under 60 cyclists will wear the Flyers' primarily black kit, with white and green trim, as the 2009 season begins locally in less than one month.
"We have every class covered, from the citizen thru the elite races. Expect to see a lot of Titletown Flyers jerseys on the race courses throughout the Midwest. We're a big team that continues to grow," said Team Manager/Racer Shawn Hauser.
Seth Lenss and Dallas Fowler, consistent top-ten performers in the Wisconsin Off Road Series (WORS) will toe the line for the Flyers in the elite and category one races.
"It was really key to get the both of them on the team, they are great riders with great family and team support behind them," said Hauser, who predicted, "It will be nice to have the Flyers jersey running up in the front of the main event each weekend."
The team started with the idea of bringing together 15 to 20 riders to form a small team, but the team soon grew to a bigger size than expected. "Everyone on the team gets along and loves to hang out. It's a great group of people that drive me to manage the team and do what needs to be done to make everyone's season a success," said Hauser.
The Flyers will race predominantly in the Wisconsin Off-Road Series and other Midwest races. For more information on the team, visit www.titletownflyers.blogspot.com.
