Team Advil-ChapStick 2007 Women’s Program
Second year Women's Pro team returns under the wing of Tom Schuler and Team Sports with a strong team led by new D.S. Laura Charameda to race a full National Race Calendar.

Team Sports Inc. is proud to announce that Wyeth Consumer Healthcare, through its Advil® and ChapStick® brands has renewed and increased  its commitment to Team Advil-ChapStick for the 2007 season.

Team Sports Inc. is a management company run by, Tom Schuler. “We are very excited to take Team Advil-ChapStick under our wing, and hopefully we can take a program that had a great first year and further develop the program into a perennial national powerhouse” said Tom Schuler. “Cycling is a perfect fit for the Advil and ChapStick brands and hopefully the sponsorship of the team brings about a greater product awareness for these brands.”    

“We are very excited to take the Advil-ChapStick team under our wing, hopefully we can take a program that had a great first year and further develop the program into a perennial national powerhouse” said Tom Schuler, “Cycling is a perfect fit for the Advil and Chapstick brands and hopefully the sponsorship of the team brings about a greater product awareness for both companies.”

Team Advil-ChapStick began in 2006 under the partial guidance of Michael Engleman and his Women’s development program, with a core group of dedicated New Jersey riders. Their work and efforts were instantly noticed with a pair of NRC race wins.

The team will be under the guidance of one of America’s most successful female cyclists Laura Charameda and her assistant Cindy Carroll. “I am eager to begin the 2007 racing season with the Advil-ChapStick Women's Cycling Team,”

Directeur Sportif Laura Charameda remarked. “I feel that my biggest contribution to cycling can be made through helping individual athletes and teams develop in positive directions. We have a great group of individuals involved with the Team Advil-ChapStick, and I am excited to play a role in helping them train effectively, race well, represent our sponsors proudly, and be positive ambassadors for American cycling. Like my work with junior cycling, this is an opportunity for me to repay my former mentors by benefiting the next generation of cyclists with the quality of guidance and support that was central to my own success as an athlete."

As a cyclist, Charameda has split her time between the San Francisco Bay Area and Italy while racing for a number of American and Italian teams. Her racing results include multiple stage wins at the women's Tour de France, a medal at the World Road Racing Championships, a spot on the Olympic Team, and two National Criterium titles. As a leader on Italy’s famed Sanson Gelati Team she twice won the overall title at the Giro of Sicily. With more than 250 cycling victories in her career, Charameda has won more road cycling events than any other North American cyclist in history.
