Equator Coffees and Teas was born in 1995, when business partners Brooke McDonnell and Helen Russell began roasting coffee in a Marin County, California garage. It marked the beginning of their journey to build a high impact coffee company focused on quality, sustainability and social responsibility. Through the partnership with Tayler Wiles, Equator seeks to further engage the cycling community by supporting talented, hard working athletes with big dreams and goals who are also role models for young girls and women aspiring to achieve big things in sport or profession.
Tayler Wiles signs with Orica AIS for the 2016 season! Orica-AIS is one of the top women's cycling teams in the world and are supported by Scott Bikes, Craft Clothing, Jayco, Mitchelton, Bike Exchange, and Ettixx.
“I have big goals for 2016 in time trials and on the road. With it being an Olympic year you have to throw everything you have into training and recovery in an effort to perform early in the lead up to selection and I am so excited to be racing on a team that I know will support my goals 100 per cent.”
