Jelly Belly, the longest-running pro cycling team in North America, will return for its 18th season, having re-signed with its title sponsor for 2017.
Returning riders include powerhouses Jacob Rathe, Taylor Shelden, Angus Morton, Ben Wolfe, climbers Jordan Cheyne and Josh Berry and sprinters Ulises Castillo and Michael Sheehan. Returning stateside this year after several successful international racing seasons is Serghei Tvetcov, former Romanian Road and reigning Time Trial National Champion.
