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; we are also looking to add to our Cat 1/2/3 race team. 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.
Application deadline is October 5 th.
Our Meet the Team ride will happen September 10th, 2016 meeting at 9:15 at Leschi Park (see http://www.wsbaracing.org/meet-the-team-rides—road.html for more details)
We will also have team members present at the Intro to Women’s Cycling and Racing Team rides. Whether you’re new to the racing community, looking to strengthen your riding skills, thinking about racing, or looking to speak with other women about local racing teams or riding opportunities, these rides are for you! Dates for these will be announced once they become available.
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, a mentor program and more. We want more of our racers to gain exposure and participate in important regional races. Beyond regional racing: In 2017, we will support a strong Team Group Health 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 Group Health 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.
Scholarships and new rider support: We recruit riders with strong potential. In addition to our traditional recruitment and membership we offer a scholarship package to help support up to 10 new riders that are eager to get started racing.
How it works: The scholarship recipients will attend team training rides and provided clinics throughout the fall and winter to learn basic training and racing skills. Team Thrive will reimburse the scholarship recipients for their USA cycling license fees, WSBA membership, and up to 10 race registration fees in March and April (up to $400 value.)
