A new project founded in 2021 – CMG Factory Racing is a brand new Anglo-American dirt-focused race team!

In the UK, the cyclocross focus will continue, along with highlight events including Grinduro UK, the UK Beach Racing Championships, and the infamous London-based fixed gear criterium series. Riders will be riding CMG Bicycles, outfitted and supported by the generous sponsors below!

Racing at this level is a huge undertaking. In addition to the training and time commitments on the part of the riders, high level racing requires behind-the-scenes support from others, a great deal of equipment, and significant costs in licensing, travel, team registration, and entry fees. Any contributions will go directly to supporting our riders, allowing them to focus on the competition.
