earned their bids based on performances at the 2008 U.S. Paralympics Cycling National Championships in Morrison, Colo. Racing the road and the track over three days, they each took home national championships.
"I can't put in to words how excited I am to be representing the U.S. at the Games this September," Neimanas said. "I wouldn't be where I am today if it weren't for all the support along the way. Thanks to everyone on the XXX squad for the support and believing in me when things seemed a little out of reach."
Jones is new to XXX Racing-AthletiCo. Neimanas has trained with us since 2005, and since 2007 the Chicago native has been a member of the Athlete Residence Program at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo.
