Carolina Beverage Corp. and Anne Whitton Bolyea, director/manager of Team Diet Cheerwine, have announced the 2005 roster for the elite cycling team Diet Cheerwine, which will begin the 2005 racing season in California with the San Dimas Stage Race on May 18-20. The team was founded in 2003 by Bolyea and has grown from a regional team based in the southeastern U.S. into an international women’s team with riders from the U.S., Canada and Norway.
"Our team is comprised of 10 riders with a mix of strength and smarts," Bolyea said. "We have a strong team in place with a great deal of potential, depth and balance." The team includes May-Britt Hartwell from Norway, a former Olympian and 2004 Paralympics pilot, as well as Leigh Hobson, Canadian Road Race Champion and Laura Yoisten from Alberta, Canada, who was 5th at the Wachovia Liberty Classic in 2004.
