The Hellyer Women’s Team Pursuit program started in June 2012. More than 40 women have participated in the program for fun, fitness/training and learning. Five squads were formed (consisting of four women each – many of whom had little to no pursuit experience) to compete at the 2012 USA Cycling Elite Track National Championships – September 2012 in Carson, CA (ADT Velodrome).
