For the eigth consecutive year, the North Star Grand Prix will include a composite team of eight collegiate women racers.
 
Selected riders will wear their school jerseys, but compete together as the “Kakookie Collegiate All-Stars.”
 
This special squad was selected based on the final individual omnium standings at collegiate nationals of riders who are not members of a professional or elite amateur teams already registered to compete in the North Star Grand Prix.
 
Each team member receives complimentary entry into the North Star Grand Prix, free host housing, a support staff comprised of a team manager, mechanic, soigneur and massage therapist, team clothing and a travel stipend. All they have to do is race their bike and have the experience of a lifetime.
 
This is a unique opportunity for these racers because they will not only be able to test themselves against the top women racers in the country, but they will also be competing in front of the team managers of the top women's teams in the nation. In fact, ten of the women who competed on the 2007-2013 teams landed professional contracts after their efforts on this squad!
