2003 Team rosters
Team Jamis becomes Team Aerospace Engineering Group
The Florida-based amateur squad known last year as Team Jamis has returned for 2003 with a new identity, new riders and new sponsors. The team's new title sponsor is Aerospace Engineering Group and the team is supported by presenting sponsors Downtown Bicycles, Toshiba, e-RX.net and Jamis Bicycles.
Returning to the roster from last year's team is Team Captain Chris Frederick, one of the US' top Cat 1 criterium racers. Also returning are John Cipolla, former National Amateur Time Trial Champion, Steve Mlujeak, current Military National Champion and junior Keith Norris, a member of the US Junior National Team and two time Junior National Champion.
New riders for 2003 are Raul Dominguez, a six time Pan American Champion, twenty-four time Cuban National Champion, and Barcelona Olympian as well as former Florida Point Series Champion Frank Travieso and veteran Florida racer Leonardo Martinez.
The team says its goals for 2003 are simple, "just win, baby!" and team captain Chris Fredericks is confident that victories are on the cards. "This is the strongest team that we have assembled in our history," said Fredericks. "We have assembled a team which will be a force not just within the regional level but also on a national level."
Team Aerospace Engineering Group will race USA Cycling National Racing Calendar Events, Amateur and Junior Nationals, and regional events, plus the team expects to compete in UCI events in South American countries and the Junior Team will be traveling to Quebec for the Tour L'Abitibi. The first race of the season will be the UCI 2.6 Vuelta Independencia in the Dominican Republic.
