Knox Velo Cycling Club
Knoxville, TN 37920
The team started in 1996 with a core group of 10 cyclists. Originally sponsored by Pilot Oil, the club was formed with the goal of being an all-inclusive organization, welcoming roadie, or mountain biker; racer, or recreational rider. KnoxVelo embarked a campaign to promote the sport of cycling to the junior ranks, and the community as a whole. KnoxVelo racers now consistently finish on the podium on the road, in the dirt, and in triathlon. Harper Auto Square is the club's title sponsor along with The Melting Pot, Cedar Bluff Cycles, the YMCA, and the Health Shoppe. These sponsors have allowed the club to grow not only the junior team, but to strengthen the entire racing team, and enabled members to race all across Tennessee and the Southeast.
