The Ridley Factory Team has annnounced its final roster and sponsor lineup for the 2007-08 cyclo-cross season.
The team, based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, will be composed of elite riders who will contest the major U.S. cyclo-cross events — including the U.S. Gran Prix of Cyclocross series, Vegas Cross and the U.S. national cyclo-cross championships —and elite team leaders who will head grassroots development programs nationwide.
Several members also plan to race in Europe in preparation for the 2008 UCI cyclo-cross world championships in Treviso, Italy.
“Our mission continues to be development of riders at all levels and abilities as well as creating a dream for riders to reach the highest level of the sport in the U.S. and Europe,” says team director Paul Schoening.
Grassroots sponsorships are still available nationwide, and some regions still need team leaders. Contact Schoening for more information at email@example.com.
