Team Webcor-Platinum's Canadians, Erinne Willock and Felicia Gomez are looking strong for the upcoming Montreal World Cup on May 27 and Montreal Grand Prix on May 29-June 2. 25 year-old Erinne Willock recently won the overall title at the NRC Joe Martin Stage Race and placed third overall in the Teleperformance Tour of the Gila. Felicia Gomez is also coming off a recent overall victory at the La Vuelta de Bisbee stage race and is also on good form to do something special in Montreal.
Former Olympian and 2004 National Time Trial Champion, Christine Thorburn recently won the Cat's Hill Criterium in Los Gatos, CA. Christine was the 2005 Queen of the Mountain in the women's Liberty Classic and looks to defend that title this year on June 11 on Manayunk Hill with strong support from Alisha Lion, Katheryn Curi and Betina Hold.
"As we come into the most important part of our season, the women really seem to be coming on form," said team director, Carmen D'Aluisio. "Our team's focus is largely on the major stage races across the US, several of which are part of the Women's Prestige Series, and we are looking forward to defending the titles the team won in 2005 of best individual rider (Christine Thorburn), best young rider (Erinne Willock) and best overall team.
