Background

Team Purple Unicorn formed in 2012 as an off-shoot of the former Bike Hub Racing team out of Spokane, Washington. Many of the same riders from the Bike Hub have joined forces to create Team Purple Unicorn.

Team Purple Unicorn for 2014 is an 11 member elite team based out of Washington State made up mainly of Cat 1 and Pro level riders. Many members of Team Purple Unicorn have been riding and racing together for over 10 years now. Our team is made up of Cat 1 and Pro level riders as well as a few development riders working their way up through the ranks.

The members of Team Purple Unicorn bring many years of riding and racing experience to the table and continue to travel the country and/or world to compete.

Team Purple Unicorn is very involved in the community and participates in trail maintenance and advocacy as well as other cycling related event in our communities. Above all, Purple Unicorn aims to help others as much as possible and is very involved with many charities, hospitals, and programs for disabled and underprivileged individuals. We want to spread the joy and gratefulness that we get from biking with others in our community that may not have the opportunity or resources to experience without the help of others.

Above all, Team Purple Unicorn is all about having fun on bicycles, meeting new people, and helping do our part to diversify and advance the cycling community around us.

Highlights

Our recently founded team is made up of talented and diverse individuals from various other teams. Highlights of our previous success and progression include: multiple wins and podiums in the Women's pro class at various local and regional races, Sea Otter, US National Championships, and the USGP of MTB. Our women bring lots of experience and knowledge to the table based on their adventures on the World Cup Series and various other large races. Individuals on our team have also seen success in previous years with multiple wins, podiums, and overall titles in various classes at local and regional races.

Team Purple Unicorn is made up of experienced and knowledgable riders that have many years of racing experience. We have brought in development riders in order to help mentor them and share our knowledge and experience with them as they progress through our sport

Goals

For 2014 we plan to attend as many races as possible throughout USA and Canada. Our female pro riders are currently working and training hard in hopes of being able to race select rounds of the World Cup Series, the US National Championships, the USGP of MTB, and if all goes according to plan World Championships again for 2014. Team Purple Unicorn has set high team goals and standards in order to stay active in the community and stick to the roots of helping others that the team was founded on
