Olympic & World Championship Bronze Medallist on the track Gillian Carleton is set to ride select road events in 2014 with California based women’s team Vanderkitten.
Gillian, who hails from Victoria, British Columbia has her sights set on the track at this Summer’s Commonwealth Games in Glascow. After a breakout road season with Specialized-Lululemon in 2013, Gillian arrives at Vanderkitten as a sprinter with huge potential in select races on the USA Cycling NCC calendar, as well as North American UCI events including the newly upgraded Tour de Delta.
Gillian says ”I’m incredibly excited to race on the road with Vanderkitten this year. The team is made up of an exceptional group of athletes and sponsors, and I look forward to hopefully adding to their palmares of great results. Most importantly, I’m proud to be representing a brand and an image that has supported women’s cycling for such a long time.”
Vanderkitten Founder Dave Verrecchia says “We are incredibly happy to include Gillian as a Vanderkitten this season. Gillian is a standout athlete with a proven international pedigree & exciting ambitions. Moreover, she has an engaging personality & we are keen to engage her character on our fun, kick ass team”
