We are very excited to announce we will be supporting the LA SWEAT Women's team in 2020. LA Sweat has had our attention for several years now and when the opportunity arose to support them in the new year, we jumped at the chance. Kelli Samuelson, owner & team mom, has developed the squad into one of the best crit & road teams in the US.
Last year, the team traveled to practically 50% of the states in the US as well as made trips to Australia, British Columbia, Italy, Spain, and the UK. In 2020, they're planning to continue their success on the road nationally and internationally but expand their calendar to race the US's hottest gravel & MTB events.
Kelli and her squad live by one rule, which is to "be nice". In her words, "We all truly believe it only takes a few positive women to influence a peloton and help grow this sport. I never imagined when I started this team that it would be where it is today, but I wouldn't change a thing."
"When the opportunity to partner with Hunt wheels came up it was a no brainer for me. Their dedication to supporting cycling and to work closely together was something that was of high importance to me and the team. Partnering with Hunt means we can work hand in hand on creating the best possible products and content to bring an inside look at what it's really like to be a professional female cyclist here in the US. We can't wait to see what this year and beyond brings. The Hunt is on!" - Kelli Samuelson - LA SWEAT Founder
Stay tuned as we will be spending some time with the team at their team camp right before their season start at the Sea Otter Classic in Monterey, California. We are looking forward to an amazing year supporting this amazing group of athletes as they hit up the biggest crit & gravel races in the US.
