Connecticut Nor’Easters will be announced on
Wednesday, January 27
The Connecticut Nor’Easters was a devastatingly talented team loaded with international speed, personality, and an unparalleled desire for victory. Home to the Centric Sports and Cycling Center, an ongoing project to create a World Class indoor velodrome, Connecticut seeks to put their state on the map of the international cycling world by bringing top athletes from around the globe to their home team, the Connecticut Nor’Easters. The Nor’Easters was a carefully constructed squad of fearsome, well balanced, and star-studded roster with weapons in every event. Devastating sprints by Matt Rotherham and solid rides by Tela Crane led the team to a bronze medal on the final night and 4th overall for the series.
