Join Team Thrive

Recruiting is done mainly in September and October of each year. Applications will be considered at other times of the year if you are new to the area, or an experienced racer looking for a team mid-year. Please contact Amanda at info@soundvelocycling.com for more information.

Team Thrive is a significant and successful women’s team that competes in road, mountain, track and cyclocross. We focus on rider development, community involvement, leadership development, while never forgetting to have fun. Every fall, we welcome new and experienced riders who are interested in racing, from beginners to Cat 1/2/3s.  Recruitment for our team happens in late summer/early fall. During this time, teams will host Meet the Teams rides, and you’ll find an application on this page.

 

If you are interested in racing, and are new or want to build your road racing skills, join us February 24, 2018 for a day of skills clinic and racing at Pacific Raceways. Hosted by Team Thrive, beginner racers from all local teams come learn and practice road racing in a safe environment. More details to come…

 

Another opportunity to meet us with be at the annual Washington Women of Cross Festival. It’s a day of clinics and cyclocross races for women. A great opportunity to try out cross racing and hang out with the team. More info at: https://www.facebook.com/WomenCX/

Racer benefits: We know that racing can be an expensive sport. To help offset the cost associated to training and racing, and to help athletes reach their potential, we offer a number of racer benefits. These benefits include generous race reimbursement, structured team fall/winter team training, skills clinics, sponsorships, a mentor program, and more. We want more of our racers to gain exposure and participate in important regional races. Beyond regional racing: In 2018, we will support a strong Team Thrive presence at the Sea Otter Classic in Monterey, CA. This weeklong racing event provides opportunities to race road, mountain bike and cyclocross at all levels, as well as an opportunity to see some of the world’s top pros racing in the same disciplines. Team Thrive is proud to be able to develop and support racers throughout their cycling development – our racers should aspire to and have access to travel to races when they are ready. We also will likely host a weekend in Leavenworth for racing Tour de Bloom, and mountain and gravel riding.
