Established in 1982, Rio Strada Racing is one of the oldest bicycle racing team is California. We support an ever-growing cycling community by promoting competitive cycling. Each year we sponsor a major USA Cycling sanctioned Criterium and Circuit Race. Additionally, we actively participate in other racing events in Sacramento CA and throughout Northern California. In the early years, Rio Strada was primarily a CAT 1/2 powerhouse with riders who collectively placed in the top 6 of almost every race in Northern California. Notable past members included Mike Sayers, formerly of Health Net/Maxis Pro Cycling Team and BMC Racing, now the coach of the Under 23 USA Cycling Team. Mike was one of the early leaders of Rio Strada Racing along with Sacramento’s own World Masters Track Champion Vince Gee and National Juniors Champion Bryan Larson. In more recent years the team has evolved into a well-rounded team delivering men and women's teams in all categories from Pro 1,2 to Cat 5. Our team not only races on the Road and at Criterium Races, but also Cyclocross, Gravel, Mountain Bike and Time Trail racing.
