Glotman.Simpson Cycling announces Vision and Roster for 2009
The Glotman.Simpson Cycling Organization has announced its vision and line-up for the upcoming cycling season 2009. The team and club will closely work together to fundraise as much money as possible for the Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund in a partnership with the BC Cancer Foundation. During the 2009 season the club and team with host various fundraising events and will participate at all major charity rides.
The teams racing focus will be on all BC races including BC Cups and Superweek. Some riders will be racing across the country (Canada and USA) at races as Nationals, Montreal World Cup, Tour De PEI, Mt. Hood (Oregon-Portland) and other NRC events. In addition, team and club members will be seen participating at various triathlon events next year.
The Team Management is proud to present an even and very experienced line-up within the two teams: "All of our male and female riders have been racing on the national and international scene for many years and know what it takes to finish on the top of the podium. During the 2008 season we were battled from injuries but 2009 we will be ready to attack and hopefully we can show some of the younger racers how the "oldies" do it."
