At a press conference held in Santa Rosa, California, on Tuesday, March 1, the Amgen Tour of California announced the complete list of professional cycling teams that will compete at the 2016 edition of “America’s Greatest Race.” Among the men’s squads invited is the Felt-sponsored Holowesko-Citadel Racing Team presented by Hincapie Sportswear. Last season, Hincapie Racing (as it was then known) shocked the pro peloton by grabbing an impressive stage win and holding the leader’s jersey for several stages. This year, the boys of the Holowesko-Citadel Racing squad will be looking to improve on that remarkable performance with an eye on more stage wins and even greater success in the general classification standings.
The 2016 road racing season will be a very special one for women’s cycling with the launch of the Women’s WorldTour, a series of over a dozen top-class events that replaces the longstanding World Cup series. Races on the Women’s WorldTour will run from March through September and includes the Amgen Tour of California, where the top teams in the world will compete in a four-stage race. The Felt-sponsored TWENTY16 Ridebiker team will roll up to the start line aboard their Felt F1 and ZW race bikes with some big goals after starting off their season strong with wins at Valley of the Sun Stage Race and Chico Stage Race.
