Based out of Dallas Texas and 9 plus years running, Visit Dallas Cycling Team, managed by FCS | Cycling, has continued to build a strong grass roots Elite Women’s Team program that has been recognized throughout the country. The program continues to build from its strong foundation and longevity. Over the past 5 years the FCS|Cycling Women’s Elite Team has been considered one of the strongest women’s teams in Texas. Our growth has allowed for the program to not only recruit riders through its regional development program but also bring aboard riders from all across the country. In 2013 FCS was ranked 5th overall on the National Road Calendar (NRC) and the top grass roots (amateur) team in the Pro Peloton. Currently, the team sits 6th only behind five large funded teams, four of which are UCI level Categorized teams. For 2014 the team focused on the National Road Calendar (NRC) and National Criterium Calendar (NCC).

As FCS|Cycling’s Elite Women’s Cycling Team continues to be a top team in the women’s pro peloton it requires the team to continue to represent the program at the highest level of excellence. This aligns with the goals of the program to not only be great ambassadors of the sport but also ambassadors in representing our sponsors. Becoming an ambassador, the team has developed an extensive fan following not only locally through the club member base but also throughout the country. With the tools of social media the fan following continues to consistently grow. Alignment with our sponsors has continued to exceed the expectations of our supporters, which has been reflected by the fan followers beginning to recognize the organizations that provide support to the program. With all of the new growth Orbea Bicycles has come on board to give full equipment support and staffing assistance to the team. With Orbea coming aboard the team will be in a position to recruit number of national and world class riders to continue grow the team to its highest level.
