The Aevolo Cycling Team today announced its roster for 2019, returning eight riders from this season and adding four more to complete the 12-rider group.

"I’m really pumped about the 2019 team," said Aevolo Team Director Mike Creed. "There is so much talent out there at the moment coming up in the ranks, and I think we have something special like we do every year of this program. I’m excited to see what these boys can do."

New to the team in 2019 will be US collegiate track national omnium champion Cade Bickmore; 2017 and 2018 Tour de L’Abitibi winner Riley Sheehan; Ronde des Vallées winner Andrew Vollmer; and Costa Rican climbing phenom Gabriel Rojas.

"These four guys really stood out to me," Creed said. "Rojas killed it this year, finishing second in the 1-2 category of the Tour of the Gila as a junior rider. Cade’s track experience will bring more firepower to our team’s sprinting game, while Andrew's and Riley’s experience in Europe will serve them well in the big US stage races."

Riders returning from the 2018 squad include Gage Hecht, who won a stage the Colorado Classic and took national U23 titles in the time trial and criterium. US under-23 road champion Alex Hoehn will continue in 2019, as will Fernando Islas, Michael Hernandez, Lance Haidet, Tyler Stites and Laurent Gervais. 

Mexican time trial champion Luis Villalobos, who revealed himself with eighth place overall at the Tour of Utah in August, will race with Aevolo for the half the season before transferring to EF Pro Cycling.

Aevolo 2019 roster:  Cade Bickmore (USA), Fernando Islas (Mex), Alex Hoehn (USA), Riley Sheehan (USA), Luis Villalobos (Mex), Michael Hernandez (USA), Laurent Gervais (Can), Andrew Vollmer (USA), Lance Haidet (USA), Tyler Stites (USA), Gage Hecht (USA), Gabriel Rojas (CRi)
