UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling Team Announces 2014 Men’s Team Roster


The UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling Team has announced its full 23-man roster for its 2014 men’s team.

In addition to the three new riders announced in mid-September (Ken Hanson (USA), Martijn Maaskant (NED), and Colombian climber Isaac Bolivar) and six returning veterans (Hilton Clarke (AUS), Robert Förster (GER), Carlos Alzate (COL), Marc de Maar (CUR) and Americans Kiel Reijnen and Lucas Euser), the US-based Pro Continental outfit revealed the balance will be comprised of 14 current members who will race for the Blue Train again next season.

Those 14 members include Jeff Louder (USA), Ben Day (AUS), Chris Jones (USA), Alessandro Bazzana (ITA), Martyn Irvine (IRL), Luke Keough (USA), Karl Menzies (AUS), Brad White (USA), Davide Frattini (ITA), Jonny Clarke (AUS), Adrian Hegyvary (USA), Danny Summerhill (USA), John Murphy (USA), and Aldo Ino Ilesic (SLO).

Pleased with the performance of the 2013 team, General Manager and Team Director Mike Tamayo spoke enthusiastically about the 23-man unit making up next year’s team.

“2013 was definitely a very good season for us,” Tamayo said from the Giro d’Italia presentation in Italy.

“The hard work put in by the riders, staff and management enabled us to achieve the goals we set out to accomplish. Teamwork is and will remain the spirit of the Blue Train and every member of our organization buys into and delivers on that promise. Winning the team title in this year’s UCI America Tour along with the team and individual titles in both the USA CRITS Series as well as the National Criterium Calendar (NCC), really speaks to everyone’s dedication and commitment to excellence.”

“We are looking forward to 2014 and are pleased with the squad we have assembled,” Tamayo concluded.
