Bringing together great athletes, adventures, and fantastic coffee.
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 course. (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 – it's something to be proud of.
All riders must love coffee.
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.
Coffee first. Then we ride.
Our riders like to hurt. We like intervals, long training 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 anticipation of a big race,
the early morning rise for a group ride, and turning on the lights for a night ride.
So many races...
Living in SoCal gives us the opportunity to participate in more races that you can shake a spoke at, and we hit ‘em all: 24 hour races, the U.S. Cup XC series, the Vision Quest and Counting Coup (one of the 10 hardest races in the U.S.), the Rim Nordic series – our area’s finest mountain single track racing, the amazing 12 hour SoCal Endurance series, and a host of events in between.
Some have gotten keen to our style and have jumped on board. To them, we say a whole-hearted “thank you”.
They have added to the success of our team and we feel very honored to be part of their story.
