Team SmartStop p/b Mountain Khakis
The 2013 roster of Team SmartStop presented by Mountain Khakis is stacked as always with talent, including the addition of veteran criterium ace Frank Travieso, 2-time Olympian and multiple national champion on the track, Bobby Lea, and the return of team alumni Jackie Simes and Isaac Howe, who have spent the past two seasons racing for the Jamis p/b Sutter Home Pro Cycling Team, and Kenda Pro Cycling, respectively. Luke Keough has graduated to the big show and was picked up by Team UnitedHealthcare, the most dominant team in North America for most of the last decade. This is confirmation for the team of the success of its approach and the value of its mentorship philosophy. Keough’s departure leaves the door open for team stalwarts Thomas Brown, Travis Livermon, Clay Murfet, Shane Kline and Chris Monteleone to step up to the top of the podium, and big things are expected from the new signings as well.
