Velo Kings Racing was born out of friendships and shared passion of the sport of cycling. Those passions are rooted in teamwork, loyalty, selflessness, and RACING our bikes. Co-founders Richard Gabel and Mark Tucker first crossed paths as teammates on a Nor-Cal racing team. Their shared desires for ongoing growth in ability and experience became the catalyst for the birth of a brand new cycling team near the end of 2019- Velo Kings Racing. Several other NorCal racers, some local and some former teammates, shared this vision.
In the first three months since inception, the team roster grew rapidly in numbers and experience all while maintaining a culture of team first attitudes. Our team numbered 20 Masters and Elite racers ranging from Category 1 to 5… each bringing a unique quality and value to the team.
We are so thankful for our awesome sponsors, our loved ones who support what we do, and everyone out there that makes this sport amazing.
We love our team.
We race our bikes.
We will continue to thrive.
