Team TIBCO - Silicon Valley Bank today announced the addition of Emily Marcolini (CAN) to the team’s official roster, with her first race with the team starting today at the Tour of the Gila.
“I’m excited to bring Emily onto the team,” said Rachel Hedderman, Head Sports Director for Team TIBCO - Silicon Valley Bank. “Emily has been racing with us already this year in Redlands and Joe Martin and proved herself to be an integral part of the team, so to bring her on board full time seemed like an obvious move. She’s already showed her climbing ability, and she is a strong team player. I’m looking forward to her continued development.”
Emily’s athletic career began in running, where she raced for Cambrian College in Sudbury, earning a bronze medal at the Canadian College Athletic Association championships. After facing a lingering running-related injury, Emily discovered cycling and began racing competitively in 2016.
