Women's cyclists from across the United States of America will gather at the Rasmussen College Women's Cycling Summit on June 10. The event, held at the Holiday Inn in Bloomington, will continue to help charting the future of women's cycling. The Summit is an opportunity for women to celebrate women's cycling, learn about the latest initiatives in their sport and discuss issues of common concern.
The conference will begin with two team presentations - the Nature Valley Women's Cycling Team and the Ryan Collegiate All-Stars.
Presentations and panel discussions at the 2008 Rasmussen College Women's Cycling Summit include a keynote address from Jim Miller, head of endurance programs for USA Cycling, a session on how riders move up each rung of the ladder, from local racing to the pro ranks and a final session on how teams can return value to their sponsors throughout the season.
Speaking at the summit is Team Kenda director Paul Forsythe, Proman Cycling director Nicola Cranmer, Wheaties brand manager Dan Stangler, Jelly Belly Candy company's marketing manager Stephanie Scott, County Cycles owner Ron Kadera and Katie Mattis, an account manager at RPM Connect, a national marketing agency.
