Bissell to defend Leelanau title

Bissell Pro Cycling will defend its Tour de Leelanau title later this month, with the American team announcing '07 champion Garrett Peltonen will lead its efforts. Peltonen will be joined by Bissell strong man Ban Jacques-Maynes on the team's seven-man roster.

Jacques-Maynes, who claimed the second spot at the recent Tour of Gila Time Trial, will be joined by fellow professional men riders Richard England, winner of the Tour of Georgia’s Stage 5; and Teddy King, another big winner in Georgia, taking the King of the Mountains jersey. Jeremy Vennell, Graham Howard, and Aaron Olson round out the roster with strong talent to tackle to the 109.5 mile, point-to-point course with more than 7,000 feet of climbing.

Representing the women’s squad is Amy Stauffer, Sarah Maguire, Leslie Gaines, Jamie Dinkins and Beth Skau.
