Cross Country

Troupe Racing Company is a small, close-knit group based in Southern California. Our team is created with a nod back to mountain biking’s glory days of small teams that traveled the country in search of the perfect race. (We believe, by the way, that these days are back). We aim to resurrect the idea that riding on a team means something to it’s riders – its something to be proud of.

Troupe Racing Company is a small, close-knit group based in Southern California. Our team is created with a nod back to mountain biking’s glory days of small teams that traveled the country in search of the perfect race. (We believe, by the way, that these days are back). We aim to resurrect the idea that riding on a team means something to it’s riders – its something to be proud of.

Along the way, we’ve met some great people who happen to be good riders. To them, we’ve extended a cycling gloved hand of support and asked them to join us. We’ve grown our team slowly, carefully, and selectively. We believe that any new rider to the team must reflect the ideas that we built the original crew on.

Our riders like to hurt. We like training intervals, long rides at threshold, hill repeats, and the long weekends of base miles on the road or on the dirt (we prefer dirt, naturally). We thrive on the sweet anticipation of a big race, the early morning rise for a group ride, and turning on the lights for a night session.

Some companies have gotten keen to our style and have jumped on board, and X-Fusion has been there since the beginning. We started on the original Velvet R and have been excited to see the company and their products go from a challenger to a leader in the suspension game. Their support of the Troupe has added to the success of our team and we feel very honored to represent them.
