Tour de Nez roster hots up

more teams and riders have been announced for the 13th annual Tour de Nez, June 16-18 in Reno, Nevada and Truckee, California.

Health Net-Maxxis, the number one ranked NRC team, is bringing Wachovia Trenton winner and Canadian national champion Gord Fraser and Scott Moninger. Sierra Nevada/Kodak Gallery's five rider team will include Ben Jacques-Maynes, winner of the Nature Valley Grand Prix in 2004 and Tour of the Gila winner Bourke Swindlehurst will lead the Seasilver team.
