2006 Team rosters

2006 America’s Dairyland/Cannondale presented by Udderly Smooth

The America’s Dairyland team has announced its 2006 roster. The 'Cowgirls' return with their familiar core squad and three new riders. The team expands in 2006 with the addition of Heather Albert, Betsy Galenti, and Natalie Klemko (U-23). Returning members of the 2005 elite team are Rachel Eichers, Australian Patricia Palmer, Anna Dierking (U-23), Laura Downey, Rebecca Anderson, Jamie Surges and Julie Schmitt.

The Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board and Udderly Smooth are back as sponsors and the team will be aboard custom painted Cannondale six13 and Synapse bikes outfitted with Bontrager wheels and parts.

In 2005 the America’s Dairyland/Udderly Smooth team grabbed its first national champion jersey when Laura Downey won the Masters 30-34 National Criterium title in Park City, Utah. Rachel Eichers continued a three-year team tradition by taking the Wisconsin Criterium title.

As part of their contract with the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board, riders visit middle schools in the spring to deliver a message about healthy eating for life and for sport. Udderly Smooth, makers of a hand cream that doubles as a chamois cream supplies the team with product samples that can be found wherever the team travels. The team Cannondales will sport the bovine look to complement the spotted pink jerseys.

The team will hold a training camp in March in California.
