For Immediate ReleaseThe self-proclaimed, and most would agree, “underdog” Mid Atlantic Team of 2012, returns for 2013 with an expanded roster. Integrated Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy is once again proud to back the 2013 squad presented by Pyramid Training Systems Coaching.

The 2012 squad captured seven victories by six different players to go along with 10 other podiums. Significant victories included the Tour of America’s Dairyland Schlitz Park Criterium by Greg Wittwer, Fon du Lac Criterium 45+ by team owner and director Bill Gros and Nick Maimone added a big victory winning the Iron Hill Criterium in July. Brian Sacawa put three time trial victories in the bag nailing his specialty. Gros landed 3rd in the 45+ Mid Atlantic Best All Around Rider category point standings.

The 2013 roster includes returning players Marcos Lazzarotto, Greg Wittwer, Bill Gros. Roster additions include Jon Cochrane, formerly of Stan’s No-Tubes, Clint Dager, formerly of Raw Talent Ranch, Jason Hall, from Squadra Coppi, Matt Means and Jameson Ribbens, from C3 20Twenty Cycling, and Matt Waller, from Tri-State Velo/Amoroso’s Racing Team. Though not racing this year, Brian Sacawa will continue to be involved in sponsor relations and communications. Nick Maimone has moved to San Francisco and will still be involved handling Facebook updates and sponsor relations. He will be racing for Team Clif Bar, in 2013. David Novak presented a valuable threat for us during 2012 and has moved on to race with Kelly Benefits, we wish him well.

The 2013 team will continue to be supported by Integrated Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy. Locations include Landsdowne/Leesburg, Fairfax/Fair Oaks, and Fairfax Station/Burke and are some of the DC metropolitan area’s leading sports medicine and physical therapy centers. Integrated offers cyclists the opportunity to re-habilitate or even pre-habilitate new or nagging injuries or imbalances to optimize your training and racing.
