2006 Independent Fabrication/Channel Café

Independent Fabrication and Channel Café have announced their sponsorship of a USCF Men's Elite Amateur cycling team for the 2006 cycling season. The 8-man squad will be based out of New England, USA, and feature a schedule that includes top cycling events along the Eastern seaboard, a UCI Mountain Bike World Cup Marathon, as well as a selection of National Race Calendar (NRC) events.

The Independent Fabrication/Channel Cafe team is registered as a non-profit and will be raising funds for The Joseph P. Howard Scholarship Fund for graduating seniors at the Muriel S. Snowden International School, a Boston Public School.

The roster of Category 1 and 2 riders includes a strong U23 contingent as well as a backbone of top New England veterans. The riders bring a long list of diverse and impressive results from last season, including: Podium finish and top ten overall at NORBA NCS Marathon, Top 25 finish at the Monte St. Anne UCI World Cup Marathon, Verge New England Cyclocross Series Amateur Champion, North Eastern Collegiate Cyclocross Champion, the Maine State U23 Time Trial Champion, as well as several strong regional and collegiate road racing podiums.

"The goals of the team are to race hard as a cohesive unit while developing the younger guys capable of going to the next level," said Jon Bruno, team manager/rider. "We will be a strong presence in any race and have fun while we are doing it. Our riders will not only be known for our abilities to race hard but also as good ambassadors of the sport. If you're not having fun, you better get out of our way."
