2004 Team rosters
The Savage Hill Elite Team has beefed up its roster with the addition of Jeremy Grimm and Ryan Gamm. The two join Savage Hill veterans Chris Fisher, Rob Rhodes, Ryan Rish and Tim Swain to race regional and NRC events in the Midwest. Swain and Gamm will also race the collegiate calendar for Ohio State and Miami University respectively, as well as other Espoir events.
The foundation of Savage Hill remains strong with full rosters of Men's 3/4 up-and-comers and dyed-in-the-wool Masters. This mix of experience and enthusiasm for racing and safe riding helps area cyclists become involved in organized racing. Savage Hill works with the touring and recreational riding communities in central Ohio to support tours, charity rides and cycling clinics.
New to the Women's Team this year are Espoir Laurel Stevens, a member of the Marion College National Track Champion Team; Cindi Hart, former member of the U.S. National Track Cycling Team; as well as standouts Wendy Smith and Sharon Heinrich. These women join Lisa Antolino, JoMay Chow, Katherine Kakis, Lisa Mason and Amy Rees to focus on regional and NRC events in the Midwest. Another major goal is working to improve on their 2003 2nd place finish at the ABR 50K 4 Person World TTT Championships.
Following the lead of Stock Consulting's title sponsorship, Savage Hill is also sponsored by Lee's Catering; Fraley Screen Printing and Promotional Products; Lewis & Michael, Inc.; Fairfield Medical Center; John C. Johnson, Attorney; Robbins Realty Property Management; The Whittaker Group; Gallagher, Gams, Pryor, Tallan and Littrell Trial Attorneys; FirstCapital Financial; The Advertiser; and Stetz Chiropractic Center.
Savage Hill receives the following support from the cycling industry: Bianchi USA team frames, Westerville Bike Shop and Cyclist Connection, Catlike helmets, Part 2 casual wear, Voler team apparel, Bici Imports accessories, Michelin tires, Carnac shoes and Rudy Project eyewear.
In addition to the summer development camp for juniors, the team also hosts the Savage Hill Stage Race, a tough 3-day stage race in Sugar Grove, OH Labor Day weekend, and the Westerville Criterium, July 17th.
