About TWENTY20 Professional Cycling

VISION: Through commitment, sacrifice, passion, sports(wo)manship, and teamwork, we will be exceptional athletes, mentors, and role models alongside our competitors, supporters, friends, and family.

MISSION: To excel at the highest level as athletes, while inspiring others to perform at their absolute best, lead healthy lifestyles, and be engaged participants in the sport of cycling and in their communities.

When the team was formed in 2005, the goal was to create a pathway for athletes to the 2012 London Olympics, and accordingly the team would be called TWENTY12. It was crucial that as the structure of the team developed over time, there would be opportunities for athletes at the elite, junior development, youth, and para-cycling levels of the sport. This would provide a consistent athlete talent pipeline to groom across the various disciplines and categories of the sport, with a focus on road and track, but also room for athletes who excel on the trails.

In addition, we would impart a shared emphasis on the importance of teamwork, sacrifice, and commitment, as character traits that would make for stronger performance as individuals, as a team, and would also carry over to everyday life, the workplace, and in the community for life beyond cycling.

The team has since sent athletes to compete as members of TWENTY12 in London, TWENTY16 in Rio, produced 4 Olympic medalists, 17 world champions, and the current roster boasts 5 national champions hailing from the USA, Canada, and Mexico. Directed by 3x Olympic gold medalist, Kristin Armstrong, the team model enables experienced and elite riders to perform at their highest potential while offering junior riders a groundbreaking mentor program.

Working with athletes at the highest level of the sport, the team has learned the importance of details and small percentages which add up to significant gains. This includes being on the forefront of esports in cycling with partner Zwift, and working diligently with partners, innovators and leaders in the sport for product and service advancement.

From grassroots beginnings fourteen years ago to competing on the biggest international stages around the globe, it is the team's mission to inspire others to perform at their absolute best, lead healthy lifestyles, and be engaged participants in the sport of cycling and in their communities.

TWENTY12 two Olympic medals; Kristin Armstrong (USA) brought home her second consecutive Olympic gold in the Individual Time Trial and Lauren Tamayo (USA) won silver on the track in the Team Pursuit event, the only U.S based road program to achieve cross-disciplinary medals. Following London, the team set its sights on the 2016 Rio Olympics, adopting the respective name.

TWENTY16 was the first American team to recruit a para-cycling athlete, Jamie Whitmore (USA), to the roster of a professional squad and became the only professional team to have an integrated junior program. The team replicated its success with gold, silver and bronze in Rio. Kristin Armstrong (USA) became the most decorated female cyclist in history with her third consecutive gold in the Individual Time Trial; Chloe Dygert (USA) and Jennifer Valente (USA) captured silver in the Team Pursuit; Jasmin Duehring (CAN) and George Simmerling (CAN) won bronze in the Team Pursuit; and Jamie Whitmore took home gold in the Paralympic Road Race and silver in the Paralympic Individual Pursuit.

TWENTY20 now has Tokyo on the horizon. (Postponed until 2021) With dates now uncertain, the team will have a minimum of four athletes competing at the Games, including Chloe Dygert (USA), Jennifer Valente (USA), Jasmin Duehring (CAN), Georgia Simmerling (USA). Three additional teammates are still aiming to qualify for the Tokyo Olympic Games in track, mountain bike, and paralympics road and track.

Youth cycling remains an important component to the program, supporting 12 of the top juniors in the nation ranging in ages 11-18 years old, and the team is a valued recruitment platform for young athletes heading to college, and many universities are now offering partial and full scholarships to capable female cyclists for their varsity programs.

For ten consecutive years, the team has been awarded the USA Cycling Centers of Excellence Award, which is awarded to select junior and Under-23 development teams that excel in the development of young cyclists into nationally competitive athletes. Developing future champions on the bike and leaders in the community are at the core of the team’s values, with an emphasis to support athletes in obtaining the best education possible for life after cycling.
