Litespeed continues as a primary sponsor for the new Litespeed-BMW Cycling team, an elite amateur road team based out of Atlanta, GA for 2010. Formerly Pacesetter Steel Presented by Litespeed in 2009, Litespeed has sponsored the team since 2004.
The elite team is comprised of 17 Category 1 and 2 racers residing across the Southeastern U.S in Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina, and South Carolina. A 9 member developmental squad, primarily Category 3 racers, ensures that the winning ways of Litespeed-BMW Cycling will continue into the future.
The team will be riding the all-new Litespeed Archon C1, one of three models in a new series of aero carbon fiber road bicycles. The Archon C1 is the premier model for the line, available only as a frameset, and features unidirectional carbon fiber and internal cable routing.
Interestingly, for Litespeed-BMW racers, bicycle racing is not their primary career. All have full time jobs in a variety of fields-a couple racers work at Litespeed.
Catch Litespeed-BMW Cycling team racing each weekend in the Southeast, as well as choice national racing calendar, or NRC, events, like Athens Twilight and the exclusive, invitation-only Tour of Jamaica and ATRA Track Events as well as at other nationally and internationally recognized mountain bike stage races and events.
See you on the road.
