The Hellyer Women’s Team Pursuit program started in June 2012. Over 40 women participated in the program for fun, fitness/ training and learning. Five squads (many of whom had little to no pursuit experience) competed at the 2012 USA Cycling Elite Track National Championships – September 2012 in Carson, CA (ADT Velodrome).

  •  2nd Place (Silver): Beth Newell, Korina Huizar, & Amanda Seigle
