Shannon Malseed (AUS) models the 2020 team kit
Team TIBCO - Silicon Valley Bank’s new Voler Cycling Apparel team kit was unveiled at the Australian National Championships, where 19-year-old Sarah Gigante claimed victory in the time trial. The team will debut their new kit and bike setup at the Santos Tour Down Under, starting on January 16th in Hahndorf, South Australia.
The team’s new race machine for 2020 is the Cannondale’s SuperSix EVO road bike, designed for speed and agility, and the savagely fast SuperSlice time trial bike, both equipped with Shimano DURA-ACE components and wheels.
Team TIBCO - Silicon Valley Bank is the longest-running professional women’s cycling team in North America. 2020 marks the 15th year title of title sponsorship by TIBCO Software Inc. The team originated out of the Palo Alto Bicycles women’s team in 2004. TIBCO Software became a title sponsor for 2006 and Silicon Valley Bank for 2007. For 2020, the team will compete in the UCI North American calendar and will also continue its international racing momentum.
“2020 marks a milestone for our Team” said Linda Jackson, Founder of Team TIBCO Silicon Valley Bank. We have been title sponsored by TIBCO Software for 15 years now and have been working with Silicon Valley Bank for 14 years. I am delighted to be adding Cannondale and Shimano as partners. We are building our team up for World Tour licensing, and partnering with these two companies is a huge step forward.”
Team TIBCO - Silicon Valley Bank’s new Voler Apparel team kit will be in action at the Santos Tour Down Under (TDU), a four-stage UCI 2.1 event. The team’s roster for TDU will be: Erica Clevenger (USA), Jenelle Crooks (NZL), Sarah Gigante (AUS), Nina Kessler (NED), Sharlotte Lucas (NZL) and Lauren Stephens. After a crash at Bay City Crits, Shannon Malseed (AUS) is recovering from injuries, including a broken scapula, and will not be competing in the early season races.
