SkyFlash Racing is a Women's elite and development cycling organization based out of San Diego, California.
At SkyFlash Racing, a 501c3 non-profit, we are helping to pave the way for women's cycling in Southern California. Through cycling, we develop strong female leaders and we empower our riders to help make a difference in the sport and in their community. Formed in 2004, SkyFlash Racing is one of the longest running cycling organizations in Southern California. We support over 40 women on the road, track, and trails.
As our riders develop on the bike, we often see changes in all areas of their lives. Through cycling, SkyFlash Racing women gain valuable bike handling skills, courage, strength, and they become true team players. We see an increase in their support of each other, as well as their encouragement of all riders, regardless of team and ability.
At SkyFlash Racing, we offer scholarships, race reimbursements and volunteer opportunities. Women benefit from coaching through ongoing skills clinics, as well as both an elite and developmental team leader.
We had a successful 2016 season with podiums in more than 50 races! Some of our top results include:
