The Monster Media Race Team is in its sixth year of popularity on the nation wide racing circuit. The team serves as a marketing and distribution agency for the team’s sponsors across the country. The team has plans to go from 13 to 16 chapters by the end of 2017.
The Monster Media Race Team is the first ever national focused cycling team with the primary function of being a marketing agency for the mutual benefit of the team’s partners, athletes, and the communities they reside— in pursuit of fostering healthy competitive cycling in the United States. Unlike any other team in existence, The Monster Media Race Team has a mission to create the most viable platform for brands interested in connecting with avid cycling enthusiasts on a national basis. The team’s sponsors, all of whom are enlivened by the unique distribution opportunities offered by the national footprint of the Monster Media Race Team include Masi Bicycles, Mercury Wheels, Hutchinson Tires, Kask Helmets, JL Velo, Shimano, Junk Jam, Monster Media, Cyclesoles and a host of other supporting sponsors.
We intend to create the largest impact in support of our vision by helping people connect and participate in the competitive cycling arena through our thriving network of regional team chapters. This effort is supported by a collective of national sponsors, our partners, who share the same vision of growing the sport for the benefit of individuals, communities and like-minded partners.
The Monster Media Race Team roster is a ‘who’s who’ in the ultra-competitive national cycling arena, featuring dozens of World, National and State Champions, plus racing and community leaders in 11 other locations across the country.
The Monster Media Race Team’s program will have a specific focus on its Pro team, with the aim of partnering young, up-and-coming category 1 racers with veteran professional racers who can impart their years of training and racing knowledge for the benefit of developing and delivering these young riders to the highest level of national class racing.
The Monster Media Racing Team is owned and operated by MMR Sports Group, LLC, which is located in Southern California and is jointly owned by Chris DeMarchi, Derric Swinfard, Phil Tinstman and Michael Marckx. The team has evolved since its inception in 2011 as a PRO team. The focus is to help grow the sport of cycling by creating an all-encompassing program where Junior riders (U23), male and female, can begin their careers, develop, and matriculate through the Pro ranks. The team will also avail Masters riders the chance to race at the highest level with the best cyclists in the country, all in support of the sponsors who provide them access to the greatest products on the planet.
