AboutNew to the professional peloton in 2011, Team Exergy looks to cement their status as a top domestic contender in 2012 with a stronger schedule and deeper roster. The young squad has a knack for performing well on the hardest days of the US calendar, and has been rewarded with invitations to the USA Pro Cycling Challenge in 2011 and now the Amgen Tour of California in 2012.
Team Exergy is based in Boise, Idaho, but has strong ties to the state of California. They have multiple riders native to the state, spend their winter camps in Ventura, and enlist several sponsors from California as well, including Felt bicycles, Clif Bar & Co. TRP brakes, and Speedplay pedals. Team Exergy is managed by Remi McManus and directed by Tad Hamilton, and succeeds with strong dedication to teamwork and esprit d'corpse.
American favorite "Fast Freddie" Rodriguez captains the crew and will be on the hunt for a big result as well.
