The Boo Bicycles - TrainingPeaks Cyclocross team will be based around young and promising Colorado riders Skyler Trujillo and Rotem Ishay. Both riders are focused on taking their racing to a higher level over the course of the season with a schedule that will take them out of their natural Colorado habitat and to UCI races all over the country.


Skyler caught the nation’s attention by being selected to race in the U23 Cyclocross World Championships last February in Louisville, KY. Though Rotem raced a more regional cyclocross schedule last year, he had strong results against local professionals and has three medals from Collegiate Mountain Bike and Cyclocross Nationals to his name in the last year alone.
