The Bissell Pro Cycling Team announced the first 10 riders for its 2010 roster, a list that includes several new faces for next season.

New to the team is criterium strongman, Kyle Wamsley. Wamsley’s 2009 results include two top-five stage finishes at the Tour of Missouri, as well as a stage win and the overall points jersey at the Redlands Classic. In 2008, Wamsley won the overall at the Fitchberg Classic and took the NRC victory at the Cox Charities Cycling Classic. Current New Zealand criterium champion Pete Latham was also brought on board to add to Bissell’s threat in the sprint.

“In shaping our 2010 roster, we have bolstered our finishing speed across the board and this will now complement the team’s fantastic time trialing ability,” explained team director Eric Wohlberg. “Our new acquisitions are very gifted riders, who specialize in sprint finishes and are known commodities with regard to mixing it up all day long. We are all very excited for the 2010 season to get underway and anticipate some great days on the podium.”

Bissell will also bring on board Daniel Holloway, who comes to the team from the Felt-Holowesko-Garmin U23 Team. Holloway had wins both on U.S. and European soil this year and is also a respected track competitor, having achieved four first-place wins at the 2008 Elite Track Nationals.

David Williams has also signed with the team making 2010 his first year as a professional cyclist. Williams has posted outstanding local results in Michigan, where he is currently the state time trial champion. Williams also wrapped up his 2009 season with exceptional results on the track, where he recently won the men’s individual omnium, 4k pursuit and team pursuit at the U.S. Collegiate Track Nationals.

Ben Jacques-Maynes will lead the team after another strong year that included solid results at the Tour of California, Nevada City and Tour of Missouri. Co-leader Frank Pipp will support Jacques-Maynes with his wealth of experience and ability to captain the riders -- a major part of the team’s success in 2009. New Zealand time trial champion, Jeremy Vennell and all-around powerhouse, Andy Jacques-Maynes, will also return and provide depth to the roster.

First year pro Paul Mach showed that he was a climber to contend with in 2009 earning the overall win at the Mt. Hood Classic. Mach will return for 2010, and with a year under his belt is expected to contribute even more to the team’s success.

"Paul has really stepped up his tactical skills over the course of the season,” says Wohlberg. “We are looking forward to his 2010 race season with great anticipation.”

Team manager Glen Mitchell and team director Eric Wohlberg will also continue in their roles for 2010.
