BUILT ON INTEGRITY
In six years Edge Cycling has grown from a single athlete and 4 championship medals to a powerhouse of 35 athletes who most recently dominated the sprint events at the U.S. National Championships. In 2016 Edge Cycling athletes won 7 out of 8 possible gold medals at the Elite level and 10 gold medals in the junior championships. Edge Cycling continued success in 2017 with seven individual athletes winning 10 gold medals at the National Championships. Edge Cycling also collected 9 silver and 5 bronze. Four junior rider were selected for the U.S. World Championship team. Two athletes were selected to the Pan-Am Championships squad where they collected a Gold, a Silver, and a Bronze medal. One athlete earned an automatic qualification spot for the 2018 World Championships in Belarus.
Who we are:
What is it that takes Edge Cycling Athletes to the top? Winning Cycling is a Science. Edge Cycling has developed systems of world class physiological training, tactical preparation, psychological readiness, and technical expertise to enable young athletes to grow from the early junior stages of development to become International stars.
But it goes much beyond the systems we have developed.
We believe Team Culture is the separator between good and great. Every day, Edge Cycling athletes live in a culture that demands and encourages personal and competitive excellence. Going a step further, our culture is supported by our Core Foundational Principle, INTEGRITY. We believe and live the law of Integrity, “To the Degree Integrity is Diminished, the Opportunity for Performance is Diminished”
While Edge Cycling has had much success on domestic soil, we are thinking and planning much bigger things. In 2016, we launched the initiative “INTEGRITY 2020”. Our vision is to win the biggest track sprint events in the world by year 2020, including World Cups, Continental Championships, World Championships, and ultimately the Olympic Games. Alongside this goal is growing and strengthening our Foundation Program, our junior development program, which provides a place where young juniors can experience the Edge Culture, train alongside our Elite Athletes, and perhaps develop into future international stars themselves.
