"TheCyclist-Lawyer.com" SW4 team was developed for brand new road and track cyclists who have never raced before and who want to learn the fundamentals in a team environment. Team size will be limited to 20 ladies, with a waiting list created for additional women who want to join. The philosophy behind this team is that beginner female cyclists deserve a supportive and educational team where they can learn about racing, training, nutrition and tactics in a fun atmosphere.
Rides, clinics, meetings, races and more will be held primarily in the Denver and Boulder areas. The topics will range from training to nutrition to racing to pre-race strategy, both as an individual racer and also as a member of a team.
The team will be led by Megan Hottman, professional road and track cyclist, and sponsored by her law firm, Hottman Law Office. Treads Bicycle Outfitters will be the team shop and will provide a meeting location and discounts to team members. Founder Hottman says, "The goal for these women is to help them earn sufficient upgrade points in one or two seasons, to move up to SW3, and to join other locally-competitive teams. The underlying purpose in this is to keep the sport growing by bringing in new women at the beginner level, and then helping them move up. This keeps local racing exciting by keeping field sizes large, local teams fed with new riders, and also helps identify new up-and-coming talent for the professional ranks."
