TEAm Lipton for Montreal

TEAm Lipton has named its rosters for two of the biggest women's cycling events in North America: the Montreal World Cup on May 27 and the Liberty Classic on June 11 in Philadelphia. The squads will be led by 2004 Olympian Kristin Armstrong. She will be be supported by Kori Seehafer, who has been posting several top finishes this year in both one-day and stage races; Grace Fleury, who will have just returned from a U.S. National Team project at Tour de l'Aude; Meredith Miller, who completed a U.S. National Team project racing World Cup events in both Belgium and Switzerland; and Liza Rachetto who is one of the TEAm's most dedicated domestiques for her leader.

The team's Liberty Classic squad will be similar that that of Montreal, but with the addition of top sprinter, Laura Van Gilder. Van Gilder is no stranger to podium finishes at the Liberty Classic. She has been on the podium, taking third place, in both the 2004 and 2005, and is looking to best her second place finish at Philadelphia in 2002. "I have been fortunate to have been on the podium several times in Philadelphia, but winning would be the ultimate experience," said Van Gilder.
