California Giant/Specialized sets roster for 2009

After the California Giant Cycling Team celebrated a successful 2008 season with two national championship titles and over 70 podium appearances, the team announced its roster for 2009. California Giant Berry Farms, one of America's largest grower-shippers of fresh berries, has sponsored a cycling team for over eight years and said it is committed to "supporting cycling and other organizations that send positive messages about the importance of combining diet and exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle".

New to the team for 2009 will be Jared Barrilleaux from Jittery Joes, Justin England from Toyota-United, and U23 Adam Switters from Rock Racing. They will join team veterans including James Mattis, 2008 Elite Road National Champion Patrick Briggs, John Hunt, two-time Olympian Dirk Copeland, and top US triathlete Chris Lieto. Also new in 2009 will be a U23 development squad.
