“FloridaVelo has always been in my heart, and I am very excited to return and lead this group of highly accomplished Elite and up-and-coming riders.  I have not been this motivated to train in a long time, and I cannot wait to ride and race with the amazing squad we have assembled.” said Ken Vida, FloridaVelo’s Captain.

“Leading by example on and off our bikes is our responsibility, and one of our goals is to bring back fun and glory to racing in Florida”, said Pablo Santa Cruz, FloridaVelo’s Founder.

FloridaVelo will be announcing shortly its sponsors, equipment choice, and other exciting news that will make our 2017 season memorable.
