Sioux City Velo is pleased to announce we've added some new riders to our roster:

Monte Brent has recently returned to our Powerade/IF racing team. He has raced on the road, MTB and cyclocross. Working at Bike Central in LeMars, Monte is a enthusiastic leader in the local cycling community. He's the ring leader of the popular Tuesday Night Ride which continues to grow (50 riders came out last week). The City of LeMars has allowed him to set up a year-round cyclocross course at the northside park where he's promoted Summer Cross in June and Frosty Cross in December the last 2 years. At this time he's trying to organize support for building Mtb trails near Hinton (without seeking tax-payer funding). Whew!

Ken Peterson is another former Velo whose returned to our team. Ken has raced road, MTB and cyclocross in the past and completed the Leadville Trail 100 race twice. Ken has an active interest in promoting Junior participation in cycling. He works in Marketing at Midwest Technology and lives in Sioux City with his wife, Robin and son, Finn.

Bill Wiggins is a new rider on the Powerade/IF team. Bill is a local legend among long-time racers in Sioux City. Known for being super-strong on the bike back in the day (thanks to regularly riding 20-hour weeks!), Bill is one of those riders whom there are many stories about. Most of them are true. A long-haul trucking job the past several years has kept him away from the bike more than he'd like but he's recently taken a local driving job and plans to ride a lot more now. He intends to race mountain bikes. He has a son, Dakota, and lives in Sioux City.

We are pleased two Juniors have joined our racing team as part of our new Junior Development Team program. Finn Peterson and Duncan Feiges have already raced at the Ponca's Revenge MTB race for us. We look forward to encouraging their participation in cycling in the coming years.
