KODAKGALLERY.COM/SIERRA NEVADA ADDS CARNEY TO MANAGEMENT STAFF

Jonas Carney
Smartville, Calif. (DECEMBER 16, 2018) - The Kodakgallery.com/Sierra Nevada Pro Cycling Team has announced the signing of Jonas Carney, a US Olympian and 25-time US national champion, as its Team Director for the 2019 season.

Carney, who retired from racing in 2018 after 15 seasons as a professional cyclist, commented, "After a year away from racing, the chance to join Kodakgallery.com/Sierra Nevada was the right opportunity at the right time."

After beginning his cycling career at age 8 on the Lehigh Valley Velodrome in Pennsylvania, Carney went on to win 8 national titles as a junior and 17 as an elite rider - culminating with his second USPRO Criterium Championship in 2018, his final year of racing.

In this next phase of his career, Carney's responsibilities will include developing Kodakgallery.com/Sierra Nevada's race schedule, managing the team on the road, and executing its race day strategy.

Having been a member of some of domestic cycling's legendary teams, Carney, 34, hopes to apply his vast experience to the young Kodakgallery.com/Sierra Nevada squad.

"I'm looking forward to challenging our riders to to race like a team," Carney said, "and collectively exceed their potential. I've been on teams that have raced that way and I know that this team has what it takes."

Kodakgallery.com/Sierra Nevada Operations Manager, Kurt Stockton added, "The great advantage of Jonas as a team director is that he has competed not just against almost all of the current crop of riders, but also against the other directors. Jonas is an important piece of the puzzle for us and he'll help in the development of all our riders, especially our young sprinters."

Carney's unexpected arrival at the team's "Beer Camp" at the Sierra Nevada brewery in Chico, California this week was welcomed by team members like Ben Jacques-Maynes, who said, "We were quite surprised and excited to see Jonas Carney at our Beer Camp. He brings a wealth of experience to the team and we're looking forward to his leadership to help us win more races."
