The UHC Pro Cycling Team strikes fear into any domestic pro racing field and have certainly shown their abilities overseas on the rugged European circuit, as well as across the world. As the only American UCI Pro Continental team - a team level that qualifies them for Tour de France selection - the boys in blue are very strong, fast and experienced which leads them to win lots and lots of races. Look for Road Captain Greg Henderson of New Zealand to be at the front. Henderson is one of the most experienced riders in the world and a fast finisher.

The ISCorp Cycling p/b Smart Choice MRI is led by the Schneider sisters. Anyone who saw young Skylar Schneider win the Doylestown Health Pro Women’s race last year has a “I saw her when” story to tell, one that will resonate for years. Skylar and her older sister Samantha are the most exciting and promising sibling duo to hit the scene since the Schleck brothers of Luxembourg more than a decade ago.
They come from West Allis, Wisconsin and in 2016 Skylar was in her last year as a Junior racer but finished third in the “adult” USA Cycling Pro Road Tour overall standings behind her winning sister and as part of their ISCorp p/b Progress overall team victory. Add that to a decisive win in the PRT Doylestown race and, most importantly, a Silver Medal in the World Junior Championships plus National Junior Road and Criterium titles, it is clear that the future is bright for the 19-year old.
We can't wait to see what they do this year.
