Q: What are the differences in the membership options and pricing?

A: Membership Only ($99) includes all partner discounts, educational calls, event meet ups with the team and communication. You will have the option to add team apparel later. Full Membership ($300) *BEST VALUE* includes everything you get with the $99 Membership Only PLUS you get a $300 credit to purchase Champion System team apparel.

Q: Am I supposed to commit a certain amount of time to this team?

A: There are no expectations regarding your time commitments or how you need to be involved. You can be as deeply or lightly engaged as you like. If you are busy and just want to check in sporadically, that is great, too!

Q: I am new to gravel and don't know if I even know the right questions to ask.

A: We all started out somewhere. Crystal, your team and partner brands will meet you where you are at on your journey. The teams are for YOU!

Q: I use products from or ride a bike brand that are competitors of the teams' sponsors. Will that be a problem?

A: No. Of course, our sponsors would love for you to consider their products. But more so, they are here to support you. What you choose for equipment is entirely up to you.

Q: What does it mean to be on one of these teams?

A: Our teams mean belonging to a group of individuals who come together to pursue their passion for cycling. Your team experience may involve training together if you choose, participating in an event together, or simply joining together on the Mighty Network Channel. What you put into the team is completely up to you.

Q: How will the team communicate with each other?

A: The primary form of communication will be through Mighty Networks. If you are not familiar with it, we believe you will love it. This will change the team networking in a very positive manner. Our partner brands will each have a space where you can easily research the brands, watch videos, chat with teammates, and not have to search your emails for all of the information.

If you have a business, you can highlight it in the business directory in the network. We are all about supporting each other.

Q: What makes these teams different?

"When I came to cycling it did not take me long to find that the elite rider had a variety of opportunities, but the back of the pack were the least spoken to group. It is my mission to change that. I know that you are here, working hard and wanting to be part of the community. " -Crystal

These teams don't intend to replace anything you are currently doing. We want to enhance your cycling experience. Team SISU will be the first team open to all women and the gender-expansive community with no expectation of time, performance, or ability level.

Both teams will have the entry rider to the pointy end of national-level events. The teams will support each other online and in person.

Q: What does it mean to have sponsors?

A: The teams are supported by our sponsors. We are presented by Champion System and Powered by The Feed. Both teams also have a long list of amazing sponsors. It is much more than just offering the team discounts. The partner brands will support you at events, host educational calls, give you one-on-one help if needed and offer discounts. In some cases, when new products are released, you will also have access to those products before the public.

The Feed will have specific live calls with both teams to discuss event-specific hydration/nutrition for Unbound, SBT, and Mid South. There is also 1:1 nutritional coaching available to the teams AND a $20 per quarter credit for use in the store!

Join us for what will be a change in 2024!
