Cylance Pro Cycling Announces Full 2017 Roster

Southern California became a hub of activity for the Cylance Pro Cycling as title sponsor Cylance® Inc welcomed the 2017 women’s roster to its Global HQ located in Irvine, CA for a pre-season team camp. This exceptional time was spent without bikes and brought the women from seven different countries to one location for an action-packed week of new sponsor introductions and team-building exercises.

With the core mission of the camp being time with Cylance and valuable educational sessions with new 2017 equipment sponsors, there was also ample time for team-building adventures. Sight-seeing, whale watching and a high ropes course challenge encouraged trust, camaraderie and communication. Relaxation and team bonding happened during a full team manicure/pedicure session prior to attending an executive dinner. 

During the dinner, Cylance Pro Cycling was able to learn about the company, its core values, as well interact with executives. The following day, in a relaxed and fun question and answer session, the athletes were able to share personal stories while employees were able to better get to know each individual.

As the excitement continues to build for the 2017 season, Cylance Pro Cycling is ready to announce the final new addition, Marta Tagliaferro, to the team. Known for her crafty lead-out and warrior mindset, Tagliaferro, 27 of Italy, will be a pivotal piece to the team’s overall success. “Tagliaferro is a tremendous bike racer with great abilities to navigate in any sprint finish. We are lucky to have her experience and strength on the team” says Manel Lacambra, Director Sportif.   

Cylance Pro Cycling proudly confirms its returning riders, completing the 2017 roster.  Returning riders include: Rossella Ratto, Rachele Barbieri, Krista Doebel-Hickok, Alison Tetrick, and Erica Zaveta.  With the women’s team roster now complete, it is clear that Cylance Pro Cycling is continuing to provide opportunities and a platform to grow women’s cycling worldwide.

Cylance Pro Cycling Adds Multi-Discipline Cannondale Talent Kaitie Antonneau To 2017 Roster

Irvine, CA. – November 4, 2016 - Cylance Pro Cycling, an Inspired Sports team, announced today the addition of Kaitie Antonneau to the Cylance Pro Cycling roster for the 2017 road season.  Already a successful Cannondale cyclocross athlete for the past six years, Antonneau’s addition to the Women’s World Tour team is a natural step in her evolution as a talented multi-discipline rider while also providing her the opportunity to continue to ride Cannondale.  

Known for her power and tenacity, Antonneau has achieved impressive results worldwide in both road and cyclocross disciplines.  A Wisconsin native and only 24 years old, Antonneau has raced bikes for 14 years. Recently finishing her degree in Exercise Science, Antonneau is now able to focus solely on racing.  “Antonneau has a wide range of abilities to use on any terrain and is already a great part of the Cannondale family,” said Manel Lacambra, Director Sportif of Cylance Pro Cycling. 

Antonneau illustrated her unique capacity to shine both on road and dirt consistently throughout 2016. She won a stage of the Cascade Cycling Classic, was the top USA finisher in the Cyclocross World Championships, and delivered a solid 2nd place finish at the Valkenburg Cyclocross World Cup.  Antonneau is also a three-time winner of the U23 National Road Championships as well as a multi-time collegiate national champion.  Fresh into the 2017 cyclocross season, Antonneau has won Rochester CX and the Trek CXC Cup. She also had a solid podium finish in the Jinglecross World Cup race.

 “With a roster of talented athletes and unique personalities, Kaitie is an ideal fit for Cylance Pro Cycling,” says Jonathan Geran, Director of Sports Marketing for Cannondale. “We can’t wait to see Kaitie and the team racing the Woman’s World Tour in 2017.”

In their ongoing support for the growth and promotion of women's cycling, Cannondale and Cylance Pro Cycling are a perfect team.  The addition of Antonneau to the team speaks to Cylance Pro Cycling’s encouragement of athletes seeking to achieve their multi-disciplinary goals, while Cannondale continues to showcase the power of bikes on all terrains.
