CHAMPION SYSTEM TEAMS

Fort Lewis College Cycling

Unlike professional racing, it’s the nature of a college cycling team that each person rides to earn points for the whole team rather than just for themselves. It’s that unique spirit that forges deeper and lasting connections among collegiate cyclists that last well after their college riding days are over.

On the Fort Lewis College Cycling Team, that camaraderie has also shaped a championship cycling program that today is the gold standard in collegiate cycling.

LA Bicycle Academy

Los Angeles Bicycle Academy (LABA) is a youth education program, community bike shop and youth cycling team with a mission to empower, educate and develop entrepreneurial and leadership skills in boys and girls between the ages of 8-18. 

LABA’s cycling team seeks to expand the capabilities of youth from communities where exposure and access to the sport of cycling and lifestyle are limited.

Automatic Racing

We’re proud to welcome Automatic Racing, both the men’s and women’s squads, to the #ChampSysFamily for 2021.

The team started with little other than hunger and screen-printed Under Armour tees. Automatic Racing raced its way to the top, with Thomas Gibbons taking the USA Crits Overall Champion title in 2019.

“We started with nothing but a goal, a few bucks leftover from waiting tables, and a willingness to scrap. We came for the challenge.”

Team I Hate Cancer

Team I Hate Cancer is a cancer-hating wrecking crew. Their mission is to raise money and awareness for mental health therapy for families coping with a diagnosis, cancer research focused on men’s health, and patient-center care in oncology centers.

Since 2006, Team I Hate Cancer has raised more than $436,000 for our charity partners.

Dirty Kitten Racing

Dirty Kitten Racing is a women’s “off-road” (gravel, cyclocross, mountain bike) cycling team with the mission to promoote, support and empower women in the sport of cycling.

Dirty Kitten Racing is a spin-off of Vanderkitten-Entourage Racing which began as a women’s off-road cycling team sponsored by Vanderkitten & Entourage Talent Associates.

Midwest Dirt Legion

Midwest Dirt Legion is building a better mountain bike community for marginalized genders.

They seek to accomplish this through an intentionally inclusive and welcoming environment, offering low-cost or free mountain bike skills clinics, continuous advocacy and partnership with organizations, locally and more broadly, that share the mission.
