COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.-With the promise of returning professional track
cycling to the spotlight it once occupied nearly a century ago, Biotest
Laboratories announces the first corporate sponsorship of a professional
track cycling team in modern U.S. cycling with the creation of the Spike
Professional Cycling Team.
The Spike Pro Track team, consisting of eight of America's top male and
female track cyclists, will target the USA Cycling National Track Series,
USA Cycling National Track Championships, USA Cycling World Cup Qualifier

³The quality of athletes and staff combined with the commitment of SPIKE
to the program ensures that this team will achieve great results. I
believe we are uniquely positioned to take track racing to the
professional level in the United States.²
In addition to financial support, the Spike team will benefit from the
scientific, nutritional and exercise science expertise of Biotest
Laboratories, an international leader in sports supplements since 1998.
³Biotest and Spike are extremely proud to be associated with the athletes

obvious attributes required of an elite track cyclist, so we think that
this is a perfect partnership.²

Racing Masters Team. The new Spike Masters Team will contest Colorado
road and track events as well as USA Cycling road, track and cyclocross
national championships in 2006.

training, diet and supplementation regimens that can help them become the
top team in the world and eventually bring home the gold from Beijing in
2008,² Patterson says.
Spike, a dietary supplement that boasts ³extreme energy for body and
mind,² will be available nationwide at GNC in October.
