NoTubes Announces Women’s Elite Team

Big Flats, NY – NoTubes is proud to announce the creation of their new Women’s Elite Mountain Bike Team. The team was created to support female racers as well as to continue advocating women’s participation in mountain biking. In its inaugural year, the team will consist of four elite female racers – Nina Baum (Albuquerque, NM), Zephanie Blasi (Tucson, AZ), Shannon Gibson (Durango, CO) and Kathy Sherwin (Heber City, UT).  Racers on the 2011 season roster have impressive resumes including collegiate, state, and national championships in several disciplines. The depth and variety of cycling experience makes this a truly diverse team.


In addition to participating in races across the country members of the NoTubes Women’s Elite Team will continue mentoring young riders through Get Out! programs and other initiatives targeted at increasing awareness to the issues associated with women in cycling.

“It remains a priority to us at NoTubes to do everything possible to increase the prevalence of women in this sport,” said Cindy Koziatek, co-owner of NoTubes. “By creating this team we’re not only providing opportunities for some very talented women to race nationwide, but we hope they will continue to act as ambassadors for women’s involvement in mountain biking.”

The NoTubes Women’s Elite Team is also sponsored by Orbea, Sixty-five.12, Schwalbe, Ergon, Smith Optics, Rotor, Genuine Innovations, Sram, Crank Brothers and Verge Sport. “All of our sponsors have helped make this team possible and we’re grateful for their sport,” add Koziatek.
