Based in the Boston area, Sara has a strong passion for cycling and is a mentor for the sport. She has competed in numerous road and mountain bike races globally. Sara’s work as a physical therapist and cycling coach provides a strong foundation allowing her to excel as a professional athlete.  "I'm looking forward to working with a small startup company. This will give me the opportunity to have a significant impact on marketing and product development efforts," said  Bresnick-Zocchi. AeroCat will be developing several new products during the 2008 season such as the ultra-light carbon road bike and a new time trial bike.

Janech Davenport and the Wander Wheels organization finished a safe and successful ride in New Zealand. Janech has been evaluating the ACR500 for cross country touring. "There are a thousand things that shine about the bike. I like the acceleration and stability of the bike. I like the fact that it is a very quiet bike," said Janech. The Wander Wheels organization has already started a new tour in Florida traveling from Key West to Cocoa Beach. They will bike this trip two times over the next several weeks before starting the coast to coast (California to Georgia) tour in March. Since getting the AeroCat bike in November, Janech has logged over 1400 miles. "When I met Janech at Interbike, I asked her how many miles it takes to make an accurate assessment of a bike. She immediately answered with around 1,500. I thought to myself, this is the kind of person we want to evaluate our bike. It is the most extreme test," said Dave Poole.

Tiago Depaula Riding AeroCat Bikes in 2008 -

We are very excited to announce that Tiago DePaula will be riding AeroCat bikes in 2008. Tiago is a top level cyclist based out of the Atlanta area with many victories in key races over the past few years. Originally from Brazil where he was a professional triathlete, he decided to move to the USA and focus on his cycling career. "I met Tiago at the Interbike show in Las Vegas back in September. In the first 90 seconds of our acquaintance, I could see that this guy is a winner. His professional attitude and passion for cycling was shining. I am glad we were able to work out a deal with him, said Dave Poole. Tiago will be riding the ACR500 and will be one of the first to race the company's new time trial bike currently in development. "AeroCat is great company. It's amazing how the company believes in cycling and supporting athletes. I am very proud to be part of AeroCat during their 1st year as a new company. They have potential to be a great company and one of the top high-end brands. I enjoy riding the ACR500. It is fast, aero, stiff, and light," said Tiago DePaula. For more information on Tiago, visit his bio on our website at www.aerocatbike.com/tiagodepaula.html.

New Zealand – Janech Davenport will be pedaling the AeroCat ACR500 on the other side of the world as she leads a 600+ mile, 2.5 week tour around hilly New Zealand. Janech, an ace bike mechanic, along with husband Bob Davenport, organizes and leads trips (including American Coast-to-Coast) for Wandering Wheels, a not-for-profit company. We met the Wandering Wheels team at Interbike and discovered that they are located only a few miles away from our headquarters in Indiana.. Janech has a wealth of knowledge about cycling and offered to help test our our new bike. She visited the AeroCat shop on one Saturday morning and helped assemble the bike. "We are very honored to have such a high-profile enthusiast testing our bike and guiding our business development efforts. We look forward to receiving feedback from the trip and working with Wandering Wheels on future projects," said Dave Poole.

We will be starting the Hilly at around 9AM on Saturday morning. It looks like it will be a little Boilermakers versus Hoosiers rival during the ride. We recruited two Purdue students and one IU student to join us on Aerocat bikes. Charity's an IU grad and I am a Purdue grad. So that's three Boilermakers versus two Hoosiers. But the Hoosiers have the home court advantage to even the stack. Look for the AeroCat team on Saturday (and Sunday)... Dave Poole

AeroCat will be participating at the Hilly Hundred on October 12-14 in scenic southern Indiana. There will be a few (three or four) of us riding our new ACR500 bikes for fun and to take a few photos for marketing and promotion. At this time we do not plan on exhibiting in the tent. Check the web site for updates as we may be posting times and places to see the bikes.
