Why am I posting a SoCal team roster? Well, for one thing they sent it to me. For another it looks like they picked up Logan Loader, and #nccn, favorite, from the defunct Team Exergy squad. Loader is one tough cookie – he turned himself inside out last year to compete in some of the biggest races of the year and had a few great results along the way. I can’t help but think that Loader is gonna make it in the rocky pro cycling world. He deals with set backs, finds a way forward, and to top it all off is always polite. He’s generous with his time and, like national RR champ Megan Guarnier, always returns my emails, which is how I value the worth of all human beings, no matter how busy or big he gets. Stoked he’s found a home for the season.
The 2013 road cycling season is fast approaching, and the CashCall Mortgage Cycling Team has wasted no time in expanding on the winning formula that lead to 30 victories in 2012 by adding talent, experience, and depth to the roster.
The racing schedule will focus on the National Racing Calendar (NRC) and the USA Crits Series. The CashCall Mortgage Cycling Team is continuing with the same proven formula that propelled the team to win over 60 races in the last two seasons. “I see so many talented athletes that need support and guidance to really flourish,” says iPA Sports President and Founder, Paul Abrahams. “The goal of the program has always been, and will continue to be, to develop the next generation of cycling professionals.”
The CashCall Mortgage Cycling Team will be participating with community events at races throughout the season. The team will visit KHS Bicycle dealers nationwide, take part in hospital visits, bike safety clinics, and school visits in conjunction with race organizers. The riders are excited to be giving back to the community in a bigger way than simply pushing the pedals.
For the third consecutive year, CashCall Mortgage will be the title sponsor of the team. CashCall Inc., President and CEO Paul Reddam explains the symbiosis with the program. “Our speed, expertise, efficiency, teamwork, and excellent customer care, are the qualities that allow us to offer lower refinance rates than the big banks. We see the same characteristics mirrored in this team. These are qualities we like to nurture at CashCall.”
KHS Bicycles is once again a main sponsor for the 2013 season. KHS will be providing the team with custom CashCall colored Flite Team Carbon frames paired with the KHS Pro full monocoque fork. “Partnering with the CashCall Cycling Team has been a great showcase for our Flite Team road bike,” states Wayne D, Vice President of KHS. “The passion and excellence shown by the CashCall Mortgage Cycling Team has encouraged KHS to strengthen our partnership with the program.” For 2013, KHS has produced the CashCall Flight 900 team replica bicycle. The Flight 900 model can be purchased at your local KHS retailer.
The 2013 season has been made possible due to the gracious support of our sponsors: CashCall Mortgage, KHS Bicycles, Jakroo, Shimano, Kenda, iRT Wheels, World Oil Corp., Velo Enterprises, Rudy Project, Xpedo, Serfas, Praxis Works, Q2, Hammer Nutrition, Rennie and Associates, Finish Line USA, Bike Religion, and iPA Sports.
Returning riders to the team for this season are current CA/NV Time Trial Champion David Santos, sprinting ace Justin Williams, climber Wes Holloway, CA/NV Road Race Champion Brian McCulloch, German National Team member Michael Weicht, and Nature Valley GP Young Rider Jersey wearer Devan Dunn.
New riders joining the team for the 2013 season are Mike Olheiser (Competitive Cyclist), Fabrizio Von Nacher (Mexican National Team), Cole House (Competitive Cyclist), Logan Loader (Team Exergy), and Chris Barton (Bissell Pro Cycling).
The addition of former World Time Trial Champion Mike Olheiser, and the European experience of Chris Barton, adds a great deal of depth and experience out on the road. The speed that Cole House, Logan Loader and Fabrizio Von Nacher possess is very exciting for the program. It will allow the team many options for victory in sprint finishes. With a roster that has abundant speed, plenty of horsepower, and depth of experience, 2013 is sure to be another banner year for the CashCall Mortgage Cycling Team.
