January 4, 2005 – Symmetrics Cycling will be having our first team training camp from Jan 13 — 16, 2005. This event will be kicking off the 2005 season by bringing the entire team together for the first time.
We are inviting media, sponsors and the general public to attend this group ride/social event. We hope this event will give the media and our sponsors a way to meet and talk to our team riders, conduct media interviews, take photographs and learn more about the Symmetrics Cycling Team vision for 2005.
You are welcome to ride with the team, follow in the team car or simply meet the team following the ride.
Photographers – We will also have our team van driving along side and in front of the group if you would like to capture photos of the event.
The ride will leave from the Walnut Grove Community Centre at 10 AM and will be a leisurely two-hour ride that will be supported by a follow vehicle and media van. Following the ride we have a room rented in the community centre for more coffee, hot chocolate and food and you can chat with the riders.Our full team, men and women and staff will be present including all our new riders:
