With generous support from Webcor Builders, the team had a hugely successful 2005 season. The team completed the year with a total of 27 victories, a National Championship title, and winning the Individual, Team and Young Rider categories in the Women's Prestige Series. In addition, four Webcor Builders riders qualified to compete at the World Championships for their respective countries.

Webcor Builders CEO, Andy Ball, is extremely pleased to continue supporting the women's team in 2006. "The women had a fantastic season and will do even better in 2006!" said Ball.
