Tenspeed Hero Racing

Racing is humbling, beautiful, scary, inspiring, painful, nervous and about the most thrilling thing we humans have come up with to do when we are not hunting and gathering in our day jobs. When we started Tenspeed Hero we knew were were going to support Women’s and Men’s Competitive Cycling whether it was financially, designing kit for our friends who race or donating merchandise for alley cat races. The next chapter of our development in this arena is the creation of a women’s cyclocross team. For the 2014 / 2015 season we welcome Illinois State Cyclocross Champion, Dani Smith, Sophia Robinson and Cady Chintis. The team will be flying the colors of our Stealth Club Jersey and will concentrate on the midwest with a few trips here and there including Nationals. Cady will be based on the west coast so look for the Tenspeed Hero rainbow in the Seattle area and on select return visits to the midwest. Along with skin suits, some nice shoe and helmet assistance from Giro, the racers along with the boys of Tenspeed Hero / J.P. Graziano will have a new team tent which looks like a boxed version of this website! We also have designed several new pieces of clothing for when the weather gets really cold. Consider this the welcome to the team as we will make an official launch after the first official race of the Chicago Cross Cup.
