SRAM Tour of the Gila on tap for Team TIBCO

Team captain Meredith Miller leads Team TIBCO into the SRAM Tour of the Gila beginning tomorrow with the Mogollon road race. “It’s going to be a hard race,” says Miller. “The race itself is hard. The terrain is a huge challenge. We race long distances. Wind will be a factor. We’re at altitude. To that, you add the depth of this field. All the teams have brought their A-Teams.” Team TIBCO’s “A-Team” Gila roster includes Kristen Lasasso, Amanda Miller, Rebecca Much, Alison Starnes and guest-rider Janel Holcomb. Only A. Miller and Much contested the 2009 edition of the race. Much finished 10th after an impressive effort on the Mongollon stage.

Miller spent Gila eve at a race press conference hosted by SRAM. “The room was packed,” she said. “It was great to see a room full of press. Dave Towle was the MC. Levi [Leipheimer] was there, so he was the main attraction. 5 women and 6 men from 10 different teams were represented. The riders answered questions ranging from team tactics to individual goals.”
