Aevolo Under 23 Cycling Team catching glimpses of success in Greece at the Rhodes International Tours on the UCI Europe Tour

[Rhodes, Greece] — Quinn Felton capped off a sensational 2 days of racing with a 5th place on the final stage of Visit South Aegean Islands Tour UCI 2.2 .

After a hectic opening 60kms of the 168km Stage the Aevolo lads never settled for the status quo, with every rider doing his part to stick it to the race leaders from COOP - Repsol & Astana Development Team.

It was all hands on deck in the final section that led into the left hand turn to the summit finish in Salikinos, the Aevolo boys positioning Quinn nicely as he lit the afterburners in an effort to distance the Astana Devo duo of Savelli Laptev & Mattia Negrente. Quinn rode out of his skin to finish in 5th place on the day, but without the time gap needed to the Astana U23 boys, meaning he finished 3rd Overall in the Best Young Rider Category.

Sean Christian maintained his Sprint Jersey from Day 1 to earn a coveted spot on the podium as the Overall Sprint Winner.

Garin was an impressive 17th on GC and Gavin Hlady 30th. Importantly, all of our riders finished the stage race healthy, a good sign ahead of upcoming races in the USA.

TWENTY24 + Aevolo Launch Junior Women’s High Performance Team

ROANOKE, Virginia — March 7, 2024 — Virginia’s Blue Ridge TWENTY24 and Aevolo Cycling have launched the only high-performance junior women’s road cycling team in the United States. While TWENTY24 Aevolo will be a standalone team under its own management and operations structure, the athletes will have access to the VBR TWENTY24 UCI professional women’s team athletes for invaluable mentoring both on and off the bike.

This is a powerful complement to the VBR TWENTY24 program, which is the longest running women’s team in the world and includes a highly successful UCI women’s roster and a proven junior development club team. For the premier men’s U23 development team Aevolo Cycling, the venture is an exciting opportunity to bring their preeminent U23 men’s road development program to junior women in the sport. Aevolo's mission aligns closely with the new junior women's team, having won four of the last five National Road Championships while fostering an environment that encourages the pursuit of excellence in continued education and non-sporting life. 

TWENTY24 Aevolo will too set itself apart through clear, tangible goals and pathways for development with a strong focus on excelling in academics and life both in and out of sport. The team will operate under its own budget within the 501c3 non-profit Tam Cycling Inc. and will be managed by VBR TWENTY24’s Co-Founder and General Manager Nicola Cranmer, and Team Manager, Kaitlin Keough.
