This team bike is regularly seen at the front of the Zipp lunch ride. BISSELL-ABG-GIANT is a USA Cycling domestic elite road cycling team based in Indianapolis and Grand Rapids, Mich. Over the years many Zipp and SRAM Indy employees have raced for the team. Its riders vary, but the team focuses much of its efforts on developing young riders. The team has five alums racing as professionals: Eric Young of Rally Pro Cycling, Mac Brennan of Holowesko Citadel Racing Team, Nicolai Brøchner of the Danish Riwal Platform team, Brad Neagos of Team Illuminate, and Alexey Vermeulen of the Dutch LottoNL-Jumbo. 

The team excelled at the 2017 USA Cycling Elite Road Nationals Louisville, Kentucky. Bissell’s Thomas Revard won the U23 criterium and place ninth in the road race. In addition, Jonathan Jacob was third in the Elite Men’s time trial and Josh Johnson fourth in the Elite Men’s road race. Both are SRAM employees. Hogan Sills was second in the Elite Men’s criterium.
