June 5, 2003 – We are proud to announce the formation of a new women's cycling team in Ontario. Team Animus is a Toronto-based road racing team featuring four talented riders dedicated to racing and to making a difference in their community. As members of Team Animus, Sarah-Jane Chilton, Holland Gidney, Maogosha Pyjor, and Karina Sacca will compete in local and regional races, including the Ontario Cup race series and the National Road Cycling Championships, in addition to conducting a series of cycling workshops for youth. The team was created with the mission of developing a grassroots cycling team that would encourage women and youth to ride, race and enjoy cycling. The Team Animus riders hope that by acting as role models and by sharing their knowledge and love of cycling, they can encourage more people to discover the enjoyment and health benefits associated with cycling.
Team Animus will make its official debut at the Ontario provincial criterium championship in Welland on June 8, 2003.Team Animus Roster
