Ford-Basis adds Katharine Carroll

The Ford-Basis Women's Cycling Team has signed 24 year-old Katharine Carroll to its 2005 roster. Carroll, in her second season of cycling comes to Ford-Basis as a strong all-around rider with an affinity for climbing. A Nashville, Tennessee native, she impressived with a 4th place finish in her first National Calendar event, the Joe Martin Stage Race.

"Katharine and I pre-rode the time trial course together at Joe Martin," said team director Nicole Freedman. "I had never seen her before. I was so impressed - and not just because she climbed faster than me which often means very little... I offered her a place on the team right then. I think she thought I was joking. Katharine is a perfect fit for the team. She is strong, savvy, aggressive and most importantly a positive, genuine person. And, at 24, she even averages out my age," Freedamn joked around as usual.
