David Richter

David began his cycling career over 30 years ago as a BMX racer. He briefly shelved cycling to pursue a baseball career as a scholarship athlete at the University of Washington. Afterwards, he returned to cycling and excelled as a professional mountain biker, UCI professional road cyclist, cyclocross racer—and even a bicycle messenger—making him one of the most well-known and top performing cyclists in the Pacific Northwest. His love for cycling and performance spurred the founding and co-ownership of a series of successful race teams and bike performance centers in Seattle.

Jennifer Wheeler

Jennifer began her cycling career in her late 20s as a bike commuter to her 9-5 cubicle job. She began racing shortly after to satisfy her competitive nature and quickly shot through the ranks. Relying on her endurance from her years as a collegiate runner, she soon earned a professional contract with a top UCI road cycling team in 2010. She retired from the road in 2012 to pursue a career at Microsoft, but came back to track cycling in 2018 to win a national championship in the 3k pursuit and compete on Team USA.
