Sioux City Velo was formed in 2005 to fill more than a ten year absence of a Sioux City based cycling team. While the team is based out of Sioux City, it includes riders from across the state and Nebraska. The mission of the team is to promote the sport of competitive cycling through active participation in both on and off-road events throughout the Midwest. The team's roster includes a broad range of riders in both age and categories.
In 2006 the team hosted "Ponca's Revenge" mountain bike race for the first time. The race was part of the Nebraska Lottery's Mountain Bike Psycowpath series and was held under the marathon format which required riders to suffer through more than four hours of off-road riding.
In 2007 the team hosted "Ponca's Revenge", promoted a semi-weekly spring through summer club 20k time trial that was open to all area riders and we hosted our first USCF cycling event, also a time trial.
In 2008 we again hosted "Ponca's Revenge" and our 3-race USAC sanctioned 20k time trial series.
For 2009, we hosted the USAC sanctioned "Twin Bing Classic" road race in March, "Ponca's Revenge" in June and our 3-race USAC sanctioned 20k time trial series June-August.
For 2010, the 2nd Annual "Twin Bing Classic" road race will be April 11th. We will again host our time trial series.
