American women's team Sho-Air TWENTY20 enters its 15th year continuing to provide an environment that encompasses work-life balance, which is vital to athletes and their developmental growth on and off the racecourse. Many of the program's athletes are dual discipline riders, racing on the track and road and have podium aspirations at multiple formats. The unique program and racing schedule fosters the long-term goals and is a safe haven for dual sport growth and academic goals.

Highlighting the roster for another season are multi-time World Champions and Olympic medalists Jennifer Valente (USA) and Chloe Dygert Owen (USA) along with Canadian Olympic medalist Jasmin Duehring and young Canadian sensation, Junior world championship bronze medalist Simone Boilard.  Other Canadians on the team are Steph Roorda and Georgia Simmerling.

"I am very happy and proud to be included on the Sho-Air TWENTY20 roster,"said Boilard.  "I share the same values as the team, looking for excellence and believing in hard work in both sport and academic domains. Sho-Air TWENTY20 also provides great mentors and role models."

"Within our program, it has never been about doing as many races as possible. It's about a healthy, balanced structured season, year in and year out. It's about developing strong healthy and successful athletes with valuable life skills, it's about life experiences and adventure," said team manager Nicola Cramer.  "I'm thrilled with the diverse opportunities we will be taking advantage of this season. Staying fluid in the changing landscape of cycling is key and with some upcoming changes to the program, its nothing but pure opportunity for increased partner exposure."

Sports Director and Olympic medalist Mari Holden will enter her sixth year with the program, along side Cranmer.  "Georgia Simmerling is making her debut on the road this year after being out last year with injuries," commented Holden. "It's going to be an exciting year and we have some very motivated athletes coming back from injuries. I think that people will underestimate our strength and that will work to our advantage."
