XXX Racing-Athletico

Women’s Development Program

xXx Racing-Athletico is widely recognized as sponsoring one of the region’s largest and most accomplished women’s development teams. We welcome women from all cycling backgrounds, whether brand new to cycling or experienced racers! The women of xXx Racing-Athletico ...

  • WIN RACES. In race season 2015, we competed in hundreds of races from all disciplines (road, criterium, track, mountain, cyclocross, time trial) and delivered with dozens of podium finishes and numerous state championship jerseys!
  • SUPPORT THE SPORT. We participate in advocacy for women’s riding and racing. Through outreach to other teams, team managers, shop owners, ABR and USCF officials, bicycling advocacy groups and sponsors, xXx women are active and visible supporters of efforts to boost participation of women in the sport.
  • SUSTAIN THE TEAM As a volunteer-run organization, xXx Racing-Athletico depends on its members to operate. The women of the team serve in critical management capacities, which help to sustain the team's general efforts.
  • RIDE AND HAVE FUN TOGETHER! From women's camp, to group rides, to skills clinics, to social events, to volunteering...we do a lot more than just race our bikes and have a blast doing it!
