2006 Team rosters
Kenda/Raleigh Racing Team
Raleigh America Inc. and Kenda Tires will sponsor a road racing team in the US this season. Formerly known as DK Cycling, the New England-based team will compete in National Racing Calendar (NRC) and regional road races. Team Director Joe Moody will take over management duties from DK Cycling co-founder Andrew Knight, who will remain on board as advisor.
In recent years the DK Cycling team has been one of the most successful regional teams in the country, posting 17 wins, 39 podium finishes, and 87 top ten finishes last season. Three of last year's riders have also graduated to professional domestic teams, something that Moody takes great satisfaction in. "We are proud to have been able to achieve this level of success at an elite level. Our program allows riders with careers outside of cycling the chance to make the very jump that we all strive for: racing on a domestic pro team."
The 2006 roster has fourteen Category 1 and 2 riders, with eight returning from last year's team and six new recruits: Kenda/Raleigh Racing welcomes Jason Beerman, Eric Kenney, Eric Pearson, Ben Peters, Matt Rossman, and Eric Tremble to the team. Returning riders consist of long time veterans Al Donahue and Jason Baer as well as Mukunda Feldman, Jason Harrp, Matt Helmong, Andrew Knight, Joe Moody, and Damon Parke.
Additional sponsors include SRAM, Truvativ, Rudy Project, Blackburn, CLIF, Mavic, Adidas, Fi'Z:k , Louis Garneau, Bikeway Source, Shelburne Athletic Club, Dee Physical Therapy, Intelligent Fitness, and the Green Mountain Stage Race.
