As part of our introduction of the Peak Cycles Bicycle Shop 2015 Roster of Sponsored Cycling Teams, we’d like to introduce to you a new and notable cycling team in Colorado – the Colorado Collective.
The Colorado Collective is a brand new cycling team founded in October, 2014. What is exciting about this team is that the group is youthful and competitive! This team includes some of the strongest and talented young cyclists in Colorado. Currently the team is made up of 8 young cyclists whose goal is to “bridge the gap between cycling’s unmatched passion and the energy of life’s most fundamental experiences.”
While the team is new, they are forging ahead at a blistering pace making their mark on the cycling race scene. Most recently, the team has experience numerous successes with a 4th place finish at the Koppenburg circuit race and top 5 placings at the Tour of the Gila in New Mexico. Team riders, Kit Recca, Andrew Clemence, and recently raced in the Koppenburg circuit race in Boulder – a rugged 5.5 mile road race circuit featuring a 17% grade climb. Jon Tarkington took an impressive 4th place finish. Also, new recruit, Taylor Warren, led the team at the Lafayette circuit race on Sunday May 3rd with a 5th place finish!
Other recent achievements include Neal Shepherd racing in the Tour de Gila in early may getting 5th in TT and 4th in GC and Andrew Clemence took the win at the Maverick Classic TT at the Colorado Mesa University Cycling Team in late April.
With impressive achievements such as these, it’s easy to see why we at Peak Cycles Bicycle Shop support the team with the best selection of bike parts and components for road cycling and bike parts for their mountain bike racing. Help us support them too! Stay engaged with this promising group of young cyclists. Visit the team website, follow them on Twitter @cocollective15 and connect on Facebook.
