Team Jamis showed up at Israel and Utah with their best foot forward as a factory racing team. Cyclists Jason Seger and Rotem Ishay closed several top ten finishes with their new member Robbie Squire.
Sal Crochiola of Jamis welcomes Robbie Squire, 19, together with Rotem Ishay, 23 to the group. Crochiola says,” These guys will be anchoring the team in UCI and World Cup cross country events in Europe and North America as they prepare for their respective national championship races and ultimately, the World Championship mountain bike events in Canada later this summer.”
Adam Snyder, Omar Kem and Blake Harlan are the other members of the team, returning to compete in all mountain, cross country and endurance mountain bike races. Jason Seger, manager of the team, shares the team’s ambition to leave a mark in whatever competition they participate. “Our goals are race podiums and to ride the most shredable trails in the areas we’re racing in along the way; however, the highest goals for the team are the championship events.”
Team Jamis will be riding on a number of bikes, namely nine-kilogram carbon 29′er hardtails (Jamis d29 Team) with tubular Edge Composites wheels and GEAX tires, to the new Dakar SixFifty B2 platform trail bikes. Other sponsors for the team include the following names: Geax, Edge Composites, Chris King, FSA, SRAM, Rock Shox, Hayes, WTB, Crank Brothers, GoreTex, Mt Borah, Specialized, Clif Bar and Louis Garneau.
