Hagens Berman | Supermint on FFWD Wheels in 2016-17

FFWD Wheels is proud to announce sponsorship of the Hagens Berman | Supermint Women’s Pro Cycling Team for the 2016 and 2017 seasons.

The team brings together experienced professionals and promising new riders in the women’s peloton. From the 2015 BMW – Happy Tooth team, riders Liza Rachetto, Jessica Uebelhart, Shoshauna Routley, and Bayer have signed with the HB | Supermint Pro Cycling Team. Joining them are Scotti Lechuga from United Healthcare, Allison Linnell, returning to the US after spending 2015 in Italy with Vaiano Fondriest, and Julie Kuliecza, a staple of the North American criterium circuit. Up-and-coming talents Ivy Audrain and Megan Alderete round out the roster.

An additional exciting aspect of the team is the partnership with a sister program in Lucca, Italy, the Conceria Zabri Pro Cycling Team managed by Manuel Fanini. “We are in a unique position of having an open door for our athletes to spend stints in Europe racing top events with proper infrastructure and support whilst under the guidance of our organization,” said Coulter. Likewise, young and promising international riders will spend part of the North American summer racing in the USA with the HB | Supermint women.

HB Supermint will be supplied with the F4R-C for training, F3R and F4R for road racing and F9R/Disc for TT’s and will start racing on the wheels in February with their first US national calendar race at the Redlands Bicycle Classic in April.
