About

The Expo Category 3 Racing Team

 

The Expo Wheelmen Category 3 Race Team is new for 2015. While we have always had members of all categories who race, this new more-focused effort to create a team at the Cateogry 3 level is desinged to accomplish several important goals. 

 

1) It is an effort to continue to allow a core group of club members to work in an organized way to achieve their cycling goals. 

 

2) It helps provide resources to these club members who show a committment to racing regularly, representing our sponsors proudly, and flying the Expo Colors on podiums across New England. 

 

3) It gives those new to racing something to strive for, providing a way of staying motivated and having fun while achieving their racing objectives. 

 

The Expo Wheelmen are proud of the efforts of our Category 3 Race Team and are very excited to see it develop and grow! 

 

Go Expo!!!
