Wamsley, the winner of the recent TD Bank Mayor’s Cup criterium in Boston, comes to Bissell from Colavita. Holloway comes from the Felt-Holowesko Partners-Garmin development team and David Williams is a first-year professional from Michigan, where he is currently the state time trial champion.

Williams also recently won the men’s individual omnium, 4k pursuit and team pursuit at the U.S. Collegiate Track Nationals.

Bissell Homecare, Inc., remains the team owner and title sponsor and Team manager Glen Mitchell and team director Eric Wohlberg will also continue in their roles for 2010.

“In shaping our 2010 roster, we have bolstered our finishing speed across the board and this will now complement the team’s fantastic time trialing ability,” says Wohlberg. “Our new acquisitions are very gifted riders, who specialize in sprint finishes and are known commodities with regard to mixing it up all day long. We are all very excited for the 2010 season to get underway and anticipate some great days on the podium.”
