Vanderkitten's Christine Vardaros named to US Squad for UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup.


USA Cycling announced today the seven athletes that will represent the United States at the upcoming UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup in Kalmthout, Belgium on October 21. Four men and three women were selected to the squad that will compete in the first of nine UCI Cyclo-cross World Cups this season.

Ryan Trebon (Ventura, Calif./Kona Yourkey), Jonathan Baker (Boulder, Colo./Vitamin Cottage), Jonathan Page (Northfield, N.H./Sunweb Projob) and Ian Boswell (Bend, Ore./Hagens Berman) will race for the men, while Katie Compton (Colorado Springs, Colo./Spike Shooter), Christine Vardaros (Mill Valley, Calif./Vanderkitten) and Sarah Kerlin (Capitola, Calif./HRS- Rock Lobster) will compete in the women’s race.

Christine will be riding the Reynolds equipped Ahrens "Whole Shot" Cyclocross bike in special Vanderkitten-created livery. The Whole Shot is a prototype bike that features Ahrens' signature ride-tuned yoke system that also provides the benefit of extra mud clearance. The added secret speed ingedient on the bike is achieved by the plaid custom graphics and matching team kits to be unveiled at the opening UCI round. This kit and bike are unlike anything to come before it!
