Team is taking a year off...We hope to see you in 2015.

Nicky Wangsgard here. I regret to inform you that Primal Pro Women will not race the 2014 race season. We could not find cash sponsors to help us continue program. I will work on securing cash sponsorship for the 2015 race season. In the mean time, I will continue to be an ambassador for Primalwear and host race/cycling clinics near my home in Southern Utah. I will also continue to be an ambassador for Side shoes, Enzo Button Hole products, ProGold lubricants, BH bikes, ENVE wheels, and Smith Optics. We could not have accomplished what we did this year without you, thanks.

For the 2014 race season, several of our riders have found new homes. Kaytie Scott will be racing for Intermountian Health Care (Utah based women's elite team). Kori Seehafer will be coaching the USA paraolympic team. Tiffany Pezzulo has two wonderful options and will make a signed commitment soon. Joanie Caron and Melina Bernicker have not announced their plans yet. I will keep you updated.

Thanks goodness women's teams are returning. While several, like us, will not be returning, luckily Vanderkitten, Tibco, DNA/plan 7, Colavita, and Optum are returning. I'm still waiting to hear more about a few new teams that are in the process of forming. I want to see women's cycling grow. I will continue to do what I can in the mean time to help. For now, there are still not as many funded women's teams, races, and opportunities for female cyclists. I encourage you to do what you can do to promote women's cycling.

Thanks for reading and supporting our mission.


  1. Nicky you are awesome. Bummed to hear we won't see the team out there this year, but very happy to hear you'll continue your efforts anyway! Please let me know if there is ever anything I can do to help you get things going for 2015, or with clinics this year. You rock. We need more in the sport like you!

  2. Prof: Thank you for giving me an awesome home this year! You inspire a lot of people--including me!

    1. Tifster,

      I'm so excited to follow you and your results next season. You are an inspiration for so many working mothers out there. I was lucky to have you as a teammate. I can't wait to say, "I know her" as you win an NRC race.
