    Sportsbook.com announces pro cycling team Sportsbook.com, the world's largest web site for gaming
    and sports betting will be the head sponsor of a new US based professional cycling team. Two
    previous US National Champions, Adam Myerson and Ryan Oelkers, will lead the eight rider team with
    the aim of competing in all of the major races in the Unites States, including the new Tour of
    Georgia. The team has also secured an invitation to the Milk Ras in Ireland next year.

    The team is managed by Bill Laudien, father of three, vice chair of the US Cycling Federation Board
    of Trustees and race promoter. He turned one of his hobbies into a full blown sponsorship. "I have
    been making friendly wagers for years and was a Sportsbook.com customer long before I approached
    them about becoming involved with cycling," said Laudien. "It's a safe, secure way to enjoy sports
    and the company is very excited about the marketing possibilities of a pro cycling team. We're

    "We want to provide an opportunity for young riders to gain experience in a clean, well organized
    and supportive environment," added Laudien. "At the same time we hope to realize more immediate
    results with veteran riders like Adam and Ryan.

    The Sportsbook.com team is not yet complete, but it is expected that the roster will be finalised
    soon. Laudien confirmed to Cyclingnews that Adam Myerson, Ryan Oelkers and developmental riders Gui
    Nelessen, Ryan Pinkham, Lawrence Perera and Ross Krause are definites for the team.

    This is great news in my opinion. Adam and Ross are definite. A little club cheerleading here. Good
    call RC. Bill C.
