2007 Webcor-Platinum Team
The Webcor-Platinum Women's team will continue to be a dominate force in the women's peleton in 2007. The 2007 team boasts 2 Olympians and 5 current or former National Champions. Returning riders Olympian and World Championship Bronze medalist Christine Thorburn, MD, 2005 US National Road Champion Katheryn Curi, and Cascade Classic stage winner Amber Rais will be joined by some experienced hands and some rising new talent. Olympian Rachel Heal, along with 2-time Australian Worlds team member Helen Kelly bring a wealth of international experience to the team. They will be joined by double U23 National Champion Mara Abbott, arguably the most talented young rider in the country, and Canadian sprinter Laura Yoisten, and Northern California standout Beverley Harper.
Managing and directing the team will be 2000 Olympian and 1994 World Time Trial Champion Karen Brems. "This is the best and most balanced team we have ever had!" said Brems. "I am really excited to have the opportunity to develop new talent like Mara and Amber, and also to be able to rely on the strength and experience of riders like Christine and Rachel. Best of all, everyone is 100% committed to the team effort - we will win races and have a lot of fun along the way!"
