2005 Team rosters

"New" Team Wisconsin for 2005

Team Wisconsin, a long time master’s road squad based out of SE Wisconsin, previous holder of 2 National Championships and several State titles, will now be showing themselves in off road events too. The team has recruited some talent for both the road and mountainbike squads, and now has several riders that can challenge for the podium in all disciplines, including Cross. This year’s squad will be focusing on the statewide WORS mountainbike series, WCA Wisconsin Cup road series, ABR road events, as well as the International Cycling Classic, known as Superweek.

The team has also taken an interest in younger riders and organized a junior division that will be racing in the WORS team Competitions. Future plans include starting a full junior development program.
