Lead by the three-time Olympian Geoff Kabush, Scott-3Rox has been putting tread to the trail for over 15 years. This mixed male-female UCI Elite Status Mountain Bike Team is based out of Toronto, Ontario. This year the program expands its reach to two of the United States finest, as it strives to climb the top steps of World Cup podiums in North America and throughout the World.
It all began in 1998 as regional mountain bike team in Durham, ON. The team started out small, with its main focus being on local races in Ontario, and a goal to support young riders, helping them grow and learn about the sport. 3 Rox Racing has elevated itself within the world and national racing circuit, boasting its prestigious position as an UCI trade team. In 2015 the team spread south of the border, welcoming two riders from the United States. Now, in 2017 the team is comprised of five athletes striving for the top step of podiums throughout North America and the world.
