The Ridley Factory Team, one of America's best cyclocross development programs for the past 7 season, is excited to announce a new partnership for next season. The Team which is presented by Plan C Sports Marketing has formed a new partnership with Stevens Bicycles of Germany and Sinclair Imports effective immediately. This partnership will manifest itsself in full for the 2010/2011 season as all team riders will be riding Stevens Bikes.

To announce this exciting partnership, 2 of our Elite riders will transition to Stevens Bikes debuting at the NJ USGP weekend; Rebecca Wellons and David Hackworthy. Stevens is capturing significant momentum in North America headlined by the sponsorship of Katie Compton and World Champion Neils Albert, both World Cup winners over the weekend! The transition to "Team Plan C Cyclocross/Stevens" is part of that investment for the Stevens Brand in North America.

Team Plan C will retain all of its existing sponsors of which it has long-term partnerships and carry forward our successful history of development supported by the investment by Stevens Bikes and Partner Sinclair Imports. We are excited to represent a strong brand of world-class cyclocross racing bikes and renew our long-term partnership with Sinclair Imports. Lance Donnell adds...

"We believe that the Team Plan C program was very effective in helping us establish previous bike lines in the USA and we are thrilled to work together again with the STEVENS brand. We wish Rebecca and David success in the upcoming events and can't wait to get the rest of the team onto the best Cross bikes in the world...STEVENS!!!"
