Erica Zaveta Selected for Amy D. Racing Sponsorship
The Amy D. Racing program, a project of the Amy D. Foundation, has selected Erica Zaveta as its first recipient of an elite race sponsorship for the 2014-15 cyclocross season.
Zaveta, 25, hails from Erwinna, Pennsylvania and now lives in Brevard, North Carolina where she recently graduated from Brevard College. She blends elite racing with part time work at coaching company Sigma Human Performance. Her goals for this season are to finish consistently in the top ten in elite women UCI races, with hopes of standing on the podium a few times as well.
“Erica is a great match for the Amy D. sponsorship,” said program manager Donn Kellogg. “She’s a top rider on the road, mountain bike, and cyclocross, and has really dedicated herself to the sport. I guess you could say she is a lot like Amy.”
Zaveta was 2013 Collegiate National Champion in cyclocross, short track and downhill for Division II Brevard College. She has also raced for the U.S. National team on the mountain bike and has experience racing at the top levels in the U.S. and Europe. Erica has spent much of 2014 focusing on the domestic road circuit, while also finishing top 10 at the Mountain Bike National Championships in the pro field. But her focus is cyclocross.
The goal of Amy D. Racing is to sponsor a rider that embodies similar drive, passion and focus that Amy had. Financial supporters include Raleigh, Clement, K-Edge and Lazer. Additional support is provided by FSA, Vision, and TRP components. The Amy D. Racing program is managed by Donn Kellogg from the Raleigh-Clement Cyclocross Team, which will provide race and travel support throughout the season.
Look for the Amy D. Foundation tent in Las Vegas, Boulder, Madison, Gloucester, Providence, Rochester, Cincinnati, Iowa, Los Angeles, Bend and Austin.
