The 2009 Women's Prestige Cycling Series gets underway this week with the Redlands Bicycle Classic, the traditional opener for this women-only national series. Roster changes and changes in the Series schedule will add to the drama in this Series as it enters its sixth year.
Katherine Carroll, the 2008 defending champion for the Individual and Sprint classifications, returns to the Series, but will be riding for a new team. Carroll has joined Team TIBCO, a team that has added considerable firepower for the 2009 season.
After the Redlands Bicycle Classic, the 2009 Women's Prestige Cycling Series will continue at the Joe Martin Stage Race (May 7 – 10) followed by the Nature Valley Grand Prix (June 10 – 14) and then the grand finale will be held at the Cascade Cycling Classic (July 22 – 26).
