Without Phinney, small team to focus on Scratch and Points races
The United States has selected a five-rider squad for the opening round of the World Cup season, this weekend in Manchester this weekend. In the absence of individual pursuit World Champion Taylor Phinney, the US team will focus its efforts on the Scratch and Points Race events.
Daniel Holloway (Garmin-Holowesko-Felt) will contest the men's Points Race in Manchester, while Colby Pearce will carry the team's hopes in the men's Scratch race. The duo will then combine to contest the Madison, an event the partnership won at the US National Madison Championships in 2008.
The three-person women's team have all been drawn from the Proman Hit Squad. Coryn Rivera and US Scratch Race Champion Shelly Olds will represent the USA in the women's Points and Scratch races. US Omnium and Team Sprint Champion Cari Higgins will join Olds and Rivera in the Scratch race.
With the exception of the women's Keirin the US team will skip the sprint-based events at the World Cup. Higgins, who finished third at the women's Amsterdam six-day on Saturday, will be the USA's sole representative in the women's Keirin.
