Who We Are
We are a grassroots team based in the Southeast area of the U.S. We started a team without a name in mind, only to come up with the name collaboratively at our first team meeting! Although some of us have raced together, with other teams or without being attached to a team in the past, we became an official team in 2016; The coed team is comprised of youth, adult and masters-aged racers who compete in track, mountainbike and road categories.

Karen Karen

I started racing around 35th birthday. Some reason 35 hit me hard, so I went out on my birthday and decided to ride my age in trail miles. Surprisingly I felt pretty good! After that I noticed a sign for an endurance race so I figured if i could do 35 i could do 50 right?! Well I placed on the podium at that race and it was game on from there. Endurance races of 3-6 hours are my niche. I love training for them because of the long hours on the bike and the quiet time and all the challenges involved. Now at 43 I'm still just as strong and even faster than I was at 35! I also have an artistic side and love playing musical instruments, including bass guitar. Cyclists have to have something to do on recovery days right?! One of my thoughts to live by: "Do what you can while you can, because the day will come when you no longer can and you'll wish you had!"

Sam Sam

I'm Sam Maurer, a senior at Chester senior high school and a future nutrition and dietetics major. I have been cycling for the last two and a half years, but recently stepped up my level of competition and rigor to compete. Originally, I had been racing by myself but recently have joined the Psychlotherapy team for my previous and ongoing racing season. The team has inspired me to compete and train with more dedication. When I first started cycling, it was a past time. I used it for general fitness and just to keep in shape. Month by month, as I got more invested in the sport, I grew an increasing interest in cycling. I upgraded equipment and grew in my abilities and confidence both on the road and the trails. I plan to continue cycling both in college and after I graduate.

Joel Joel

Joel has been riding recreationally for several years on both the mountainbike amd road bike. He had a pretty severe injury in the spring of last year while training to the Aasault on Mt Mitchell. He is mostly recovered now and hoping for a good year of training and getting back to it!

Holly Holly

I started racing in 2014 when some friends suggested I give competition a shot. I was hooked after my first race and quickly learned that I prefer time trials over most anything else. I enjoy the challenge, opportunity for self-mastery, and discipline offerred by bicycle racing. I've competed in road, mountain and track events and raced twice at Master's Nationals. I recently got track certified and I'm looking forward to trying this form of racing in 2017. When I'm not training and racing, I work with couples and individuals in outpatient private practice. I enjoy nature, travel, music, food and spending time with loved ones.

Daniel pic of Daniel will be here soon

Daniel is primarily a mountainbike racer and enjoyes riding the trails near Charlotte. He competed in the 6 hr mountainbike race in Boone last year and ran his bike with a flat tire over the finish line! He got into racing when a friend, Jeff Cobb, told him about a new team in the area.

Chad Chad

Chad has been bicycle racing for several years and also competes in Triathlons, including Ironman Distance events.

Erick Erick

I started racing in 2016 when Daniel joined Holly's team. After talking with them, I decided to give racing a shot. My first road race was the Assault on Mt Mitchell. I've been mountainbike riding for 3 years, and road riding for 1 year. I enjoy taking my dog Buddy onto the greenway and on various trips with a bike trailer and camping gear. To prime for the 2017 race season, I ran the Swamp Rabbit marathon in the offseason in November.

Heidi Heidi

Heidi began riding her bike to train for triathlons. She completed an Ironman (Wilmington) in 2015 and enjoys time trials as well. She is taking the year off and will be cheering at races soon with the newest miniature PsychloTherapy fan in tow.
