Olympic dreams as team prepares for World Championships - team website launched

Project London is an elite track cycling team, inspired, created and managed by Rubicon Cycling, LCC. Rubicon Cycling will carry on the mission of benefiting the LIVESTRONG organization while pursuing the development of young cyclists into champion professional athletes, fulfilling their dream of representing the United States of America in the Olympic Games.

The Olympic dream of our four athletes through Project London is made possible by the generous sponsorship of Felt Bicycles, Rolf Prima wheels, Nike, Giro, Oakley, Schwalbe Tires, Park Tools, DMT and United Finance. Athletes will compete in a variety of events across the US as a trade team and will also vie for slots on the USA National Team in international competition in the UCI World Cup, UCI World Championships, and the Olympic Games.

Project London rider Dean Tracy set a new American record in Manchester and helped team USA qualify for the Team Sprint at the UCI World Championships.

Two Project London riders, Dean Tracy and 2008 Olympian Michael Blatchford now fly to Holland along with Team USA rider Giddeon Massie to represent the red, white and blue against the best in the world. Currently the team is training at the Home Depot Velodrome.
