The Mafia road racing team will continue to be supported by Felt Bicycles in 2010.

The goal is to inspire people to reach out and be a part of the worl of arts, culture and health.
New to the team are Tristan Schouten, Kathy Sherwin and Sam Jurekovic. Tristan won the 2010 Wisconsin state cyclo-cross and is part of the top ten cyclists for the US Grand Prix of Cyclocross’ Planet Bike Cup. On the other hand, Kathy won the Utah State Cross-country race thrice. Sam was a former Under-23 National champion.
The Mafia team welcomes back three outstanding riders namely Becca Blay, Jake Wells and Seth Wealing. Jim Felt of Fel bicycles expressed his satisfaction over the program, “It’s a unique program that accomplishes a lot with both its racing results and its community outreach efforts. Felt shares those same values, and this continues to be a great partnership.”
A variety of bikes will be used by the Mafia Racing team during competition. This would range from FX series cyclo-cross bikes and mountain bikes to Nine series 29inch hardtails to the Virtue series full-suspension bikes that features the highly acclaimed Equilink rear suspension.
