Team Cycle Center completed its roster for the 2014 season. Our current riders Ville Heistman, Niki Birling, Jari Kemppainen and Matti Priha will be supported by four new prominent riders who step up to Team from Aviapolis Cycling Team from Vantaa. Also four new riders from ACT did join our amateur team in purpose to further get classified in elite category. All of these riders fit in very well with the ambition of the team. Our overall focus is on the development of the young riders like Ville Heistman and Niki Birling alongside all the others that we have on the team. But at the same time – as has always been the case – our driving ambition as a cycling team is to focus on teamwork and cycling as a best form of fitness and healthcare.
From these grounds and to take also a step towards the womens team we established for this season a new project “Cycle Center Ladies Team” focusing on Tour de Helsinki cyclosportive cycling event. Our ladies are hi-end professionals on their field of career but despite of their demanding working life they are also persons who are able to see the importance of counteractivity and well-being in their activities. Cycle Center Ltd and Team Cycle Center are proud to support the Ladies team through their objective to race late on August in Tour Helsinki and their training towards this event. For the last but most important we have our “magnificient” team leader Pauliina as a director and the best assistants Jokke and Artsi with us on the upcoming season.
The complete 2014 team roster:
Pauliina Soilu, coach
Jouko Lappalainen, assistant
Arto Ahonen, assistant
