XXX Racing-Athletico

Our History

xXx Racing was founded in 1999 by professional couriers who wanted to extend their cycling experience to organized racing. Since then the team has established itself as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that has grown to become one of the Midwest's largest and most successful teams. Although we cherish our roots and maintain a program to introduce messengers to sanctioned racing, we welcome all Chicago cyclists. Indeed, we celebrate our diversity and inclusiveness.

Athletico joined XXX Racing as a sponsor in 2002 and in 2003 became our co-title sponsor, creating the XXX Racing-Athletico team. We are thrilled to be partnered with Chicago's finest source of physical therapy and sports medicine.

We have specialized programs, clinics and professional team coaching services and put an emphasis on the development of new racers. We also have one of the Midwest's largest women's racing teams, and we manage a juniors program that has produced national champions and a silver medal at the 2003 junior world championships.

We also support cycling locally with races and other programs. XXX Racing-Athletico works closely with the Active Transportation Alliance and other cycling organizations to help promote cycling in the community.
