     2017 Jelly Belly Cycling Team presented by MAXXIS

Our riders eat their share of Jelly Belly jelly beans and give away lots of samples to the fans they meet at races and on their training rides. Their favorite Jelly Belly flavors span the range of Official Flavors from Watermelon to Very Cherry to Blueberry, but most agree their favorite Sport Beans flavors are Green Apple and Berry.

Jelly Belly, the longest-running pro cycling team in North America, will return for its 18th season, having re-signed with its title sponsor for 2017.

Returning riders include powerhouses Jacob Rathe, Taylor Shelden, Angus Morton, Ben Wolfe, climbers Jordan Cheyne and Josh Berry and sprinters Ulises Castillo and Michael Sheehan. Returning stateside this year after several successful international racing seasons is Serghei Tvetcov, former Romanian Road and reigning Time Trial National Champion. Sean Bennett, a promising U-23 all-rounder, will also join Jelly Belly this year.  

Jelly Belly plans to race numerous NRC events in the U.S. including The Redlands Bicycle Classic and hopes to earn invitations to the Amgen Tour of California, the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah, the Tours of Colorado and the Commonwealth (in Virginia) and the Tour of Alberta.
