USA Cycling media release
USA Cycling announced today the cyclists named to the 2006-07 USA Cycling Track Talent Pool for the upcoming season. Riders who will represent the United States in all major international track cycling competitions during the 2006-07 season will be drawn from this pool of athletes.
Several winners from this month’s USA Cycling Elite Track National Championships and riders who met time standards at qualifying events throughout the season received automatic nominations. Factors taken into account for the at-large coaches’ selections were an athlete’s long-range potential and past performances in domestic and international competition.
Also earning automatic nominations were riders who earned overall 2006 National Track Calendar Series titles. The USA Cycling National Track Calendar ended with the Elite National Championships earlier this month. Nine overall series championships were awarded to riders who amassed the most points throughout the 13-event series. Sarah Hammer (Ouch Pro Cycling) won the women’s scratch race and points race titles with a total of 15 points in each event. Jennie Reed (Spike) claimed the women’s keirin title with 35 points and the sprint title with 25 points.
In the Endurance Squad, Hammer, an automatic nomination, ended an 11-year drought by winning the world title in the pursuit. She also set a new national record, met a time standard, and claimed the individual pursuit national title. Day was automatically chosen for meeting a time standard. Quinn, Armstrong, Trapp, Cliff-Ryan, and Benjamin were all coaches’ nominations based on their 2006 results. In the Sprint Squad, Reed swept the women’s sprint events at the national championships, and won the National Track Calendar in the sprint and the keirin to receive an automatic nomination. Reap-Carlson and Lang were both coaches’ selections based on their 2006 domestic results
