Cylance Pro Cycling Announce Ladies Tour of Qatar Roster
Four day race to be team's biggest test to date
Cylance Pro Cycling makes their second stop on the 2016 UCI Women’s calendar with this week’s Ladies’ Tour of Qatar.
With six riders per roster, Cylance will be represented by Shelley Olds (USA), Doris Schweizer (SUI), Valentina Scandolara (ITA), Rachele Barbieri (ITA), Alison Tetrick (USA) and Sheyla Gutierrez (ESP).
In 2015, Olds placed 3rd on Stage One. She and Valentina Scandolara finished top 20 in the GC, and both riders are looking to bring Cylance to the podium in 2016.
"We are going to Qatar with a mix of experienced and young riders. We expect a very hard race with a lot of wind. The course is suited more for a rider like Shelley and we will see what we can do together with the rest of the team. It will be interesting to see the first race for our young riders Sheyla and Rachele"
