March 8/11 12:21 pm - MelRad Racing Announces 2011 Team Roster

Posted by Editoress on 03/8/11

Although the weather may not be indicative of it, the 2011 racing season is upon us, and with that the 2011 MelRad Racing team has been set.  The team will compete alongside and under the guidance of three time XTERRA World Champion Melanie McQuaid ( and hopes to have another strong showing at all the regional XTERRA competitions and the XTERRA World Championships in Maui. This year the team will also expand into the Ironman 70.3 series and select mountain biking events throughout the US and Canada.

Veterans Keri Grosse, Fred Smith IV, Meiling Yee, Tim Holland, and Jo Markham will carry the team of nine riders, with newcomers John Belair, Lance Thatcher, Whitney Houck, and Canadian Katie Button rounding out the now international squad. Tim, Fred, and Jo all achieved podium finishes in their age groups at the XTERRA World Championships this past October and hope to repeat again this year and Meiling Yee was Regional Champion.

The goal of the MelRad Racing team is to foster development within middle distance triathlon including XTERRA and 70.3 racing.  The athletes on the team have goals ranging from World Championship wins, Regional titles, future pro status, to general fitness and competitiveness.  Together the athletes send a powerful message to "push your potential."

The team will be supported by Melanie and her sponsors, including Avia, Nathan, Profile Design, Powerbar, Sundog Eyewear, USANA, Justin's Nut Butter, Squirt, Genuine Innovations, Cycleops, Titec, and ESI Grips.

Follow the team at and on Twitter at for fun stories and information during the season.
