BIKE RACK MULTISPORT TEAM
Bike Rack Multisport believes individual athletes are motivated to perform better and have more fun as part of a committed, energized group. The team is a visible presence in Washington, DC, respected for our competitiveness, active member participation, and engagement in the multisport community. We aim to increase the quality and engagement of team membership through active and enthusiastic participation in team activities and promotion of our sponsors through proudly and consistently wearing our kits in training and racing.
We are a team and community of multisport athletes, competing in triathlons, duathlons, and other endurance races in the greater DC and Mid-Atlantic region. Our mission is to:
- Build and strengthen a competitive but inclusive team atmosphere;
- Promote the multisport lifestyle in the Washington, D.C., Metro area by providing endurance athletes with an approachable, cohesive community in which to train, compete, and socialize;
- Attract and retain dedicated members of all competition levels, abilities, and backgrounds;
- Support our teammates in their pursuit of personal fitness and multisport goals; and
- Maintain a competitive presence in area triathlons, duathlons, and other multisport events and series.
The team was founded in late 2008 as a racing outlet for friends of the shop. Over the 2009 and 2010 seasons, the team grew to become an independently-run organization with an elected Board of Directors, retaining The Bike Rack as the team’s title sponsor. With the Board’s direction, the 2010, 2011 and 2012 seasons were a huge success. The team directly supported local races such as the Washington DC and Nation’s Triathlons; as well as assisting with the Washington DC Triathlon Tri Clinic Series and providing members in support of the Achieve Kids Tri Camp. BRM’s presence in the DC triathlon community has grown and become a well-recognized part of the community.

BIKE RACK RACING
The Bike Rack Road Team is dedicated to advancing women’s racing in the mid-Atlantic region. The Team supports and promotes women in racing—new and experienced alike—who are passionate about riding and eager to join a competitive community.
The team gives riders the opportunity to explore the world of competitive road and cyclocross racing, with the support of a team to help reach individual goals. Our primary focuses are giving the opportunity to improve your skills, grow as a team, work and race hard, and above all: have fun while doing so. We welcome all levels: from those who have each other and challenging all to become better riders.
TEAM STICKY FINGERS WOMEN’S ROAD TEAM
Yes, we race. In all kinds of ways: in criteriums, stage races, alleycats, cyclocross races, intergalactic relays, ultracross events, mountain bike races, and road races. But racing is only part of who we are and what we do. As individuals and also as team members, we work hard to support each other on and off-course, and are actively involved in the local area cycling community, working with members of other teams and organizations to strengthen the presence of women on bikes by empowering ourselves and other women to the extent that we can with tools, knowledge, strength, and confidence. We aim to have a presence in the local race scene, and also on the roads, actively working to grow opportunities for other women to engage the racing community and with each other. Our partnership with the Bike Rack is central to this effort.
As ladies of Team Sticky Fingers, we, along with the ladies of the Bike Rack Road team and all the other teams out there, are women’s cycling. We endeavor to ride safe, and to be responsible. We train hard and ride smart. We each aim to be that woman whose wheel you would want to be on through the most technical course; and we each aim to be that woman you’d want with you on the longest and most grueling training ride when you have nothing left, and need a partner in crime to get you emotionally, mentally, and physically home. We each can’t be that woman all the time, but every time we ride, she is the person we strive to be for ourselves, for each other, and for the riders out there on the road.
Thanks to The Bike Rack for being a great home for great things!
