About Avout Racing
Avout Racing’s mission is to enjoy riding and racing to the fullest while fostering camaraderie and achieving competitive excellence for both the team and individuals. We strive to be good stewards of the sport of cycling, the team’s sponsors, and the planet as a whole.
Avout Racing was founded in 2013 and over the past seven racing seasons we have grown from a team of 15 to 150 strong. In 2014, we added the Elite Team – a team of our most competitive adult racers. In 2015 we added the Inspire Orthodontics Juniors Team, which represents over a third of our racers. And in 2018 we launched Selects to challenge even the most accomplished junior athletes. The enthusiasm of juniors has skyrocketed, and in response we have added two more programs this year: Inspire Juniors Rec for kids to ride recreationally and brush up their skills and NICA Prep to get high schoolers ready for their school's mountain bike team.
We attribute our success to assembling the right sponsors, managers, and members to achieve the greater good for all involved. Getting results is not only fun for our team, but also fantastic exposure for our sponsors. And our good vibe passes to those we race with and against, our sponsors, and the whole community. Avout Racing is a team of attraction – and people love to be associated with that.
