Racer X Cycling (RXC) is a bicycle racing team based in Golden, Colorado that maintains a strong, winning presence across all race disciplines including road, mountain, cross, track and gravel. We foster a positive environment for committed racers who want to further improve their skill and reach their personal racing goals. The team fields racers in every category from Junior to 70+, from Cat 5 beginners to the Pro level. Our team operates with a strong sense of camaraderie and support, and we believe in training, racing and giving back to the team and our community through mentoring, volunteering, and time donations. Most importantly, we love our sport and love to ride and race our bikes!
