Northern Colorado is home to many teams and clubs. FCCT is unique among them in our commitment not only to racing, but developing the culture and community. Our approach is to identify members and sponsors who share our values and goals, and are motivated to work towards them together.
Among our active members are: the Vice President of the American Cycling Association (Colorado’s race sanctioning body), the owner/editor of YourGroupRide.com (the region’s only comprehensive racing and cycling blog and calendar), the Director and several board members of Northern Colorado Cycling Events (a steering board for event development in NorCo), and regular contributors to the Coloradoan and CyclingNews.com.
FCCT is known as the "nice guy" team. We encourage participation, volunteering, and mentorship. We lead 3 weekly training rides in town, including a ride specifically to foster less experienced riders. in 2012, we also introduced skills clinics to our City Streets Criteriums, to develop safe and responsible habits in new racers.
FCCT promotes Cross of the North, the Colorado Cyclocross Championship, as well as a grassroots series, the City Streets Criteriums. Our members promote or volunteer at just about every event in the region, including the Taft Hill, Horsetooth and Double Dams Time Trial Series and the USGP of Cyclocross. We're also represented on the committee working to bring the USA Pro Challenge to Northern Colorado in 2013.
FCCT racers are as prolific on our bikes as we are behind the scenes, logging over 390 race days in 2012, with 125 top 5s and 32 wins. We count among our ranks National champions, ACA Best All Around Riders, stage race winners, enduro champions, 24 hour team race podiums, and more, in categories from masters women, to category 4s, to elites (for 2013 we are proud to present Northrn Colorado's only elite mens road race team).
