Velo Bella-Kona announce bi-coastal cyclocross team

The United State's Velo Bella-Kona women's Cyclocross team has announced its expansion into the East Coast scene to cater for both sides of the nation. "Velo Bella is dedicated to providing a place for women to ride their bikes, race their bikes, and above all, get muddy in a skinsuit," explained team co-founder Sabine Dukes. "With continued membership growth across the US, we felt it necessary to create a bi-coastal cyclocross team to mentor and inspire our members wherever they are. That and there just isn't enough mud here in California."

The non-profit outfit, now entering its third year, will contest the Crank Brother's US Grand Prix of Cyclocross, US Cyclocross Nationals and over 60 independent races. Newcomers to the team's Elite lineup include California's Sarah Kerlin, Barb Howe and Ann Fitzsimmons who join team veterans Erin Kassoy, Shannon Holden and developmental racer Marian Jamison complete the squad.
