Wholly Bagels Cycling Team - NZ Tour and World Cup Roster

World Cup Round 2 - Wellington, Team Preview

Race date - 5th March 2006

Wholly Bagels, in association with presenting sponsor Unichem Perham Pharmacy, has announced it's team for the Wellington (New Zealand) UCI World Cup of Cycling and Tour of New Zealand to be held in and around New Zealand's capital city during the first week of March, 2006.

The Wholly Bagels (Women's) Cycling Team has been raised especially for participation in these two events, building on the on-going individual sponsorship of several developing Wellington athletes by the independant bagel cafe chain. The aim of the team is to provide the best possible platform for a group of developing cyclists to get as much as possible out of the rare opportunity of having the world's very best female cyclists racing on home soil.

The team combines the experience and leadership abilities of Wellington cross-country mountain-biker Robyn Wong (Olympian and 2006 NZ Commonwealth Games Team member) and American Category One road cyclist Robin Farina (on exchange from Team Kenda Tyre, USA), with some of New Zealand's most talented up-and-coming women cyclists.

Wholly Bagels is a sponsor of the Trust House Tour of New Zealand and Women's World Cup events themselves, in addition to supporting the Wholly Bagels Cycling Team.

The team includes three riders from (host city) Wellington City: Nicola Johnson, Robyn Wong and Pernille Fletcher.


Team Manager, Karl Kane said "This team will give our two established elite-level riders (Wong, Farina) a chance to take on a supported leadership role, and offer our development riders, some are very strong all-rounders already and others great technicians or very talented climbers, the chance to play a real role in a solid team result.

Nobody can ask an up-and-coming rider to take on alone the likes of T-Mobile's (former World Champion) Judith Arndt and Sarah Ulmer in Commonwealth Games build-up mode without setting them up for failure, but this is a team of women all talented enough to be there to make an individual contribution to a good team result.

It sounds like common sense, but many flat (structured) development teams turn into examples of the blind leading the blind. With the contribution of the two experienced captains, the Wholly Bagels team can provide a platform for the girls to genuinely get as much out of this unique 'home turf' experience as possible, enjoy the racing in a supportive environment and perhaps surprise a few people with one or two good results.
