About

Team Great Divide is a local, competition based team affiliated with the Great Divide Cyclery. Team members interests include triathalon, mountain bike racing, road racing, and cyclocross. The team has four main goals:

  1. To support cyclists and cycling in the Helena community.
  2. To support competitive riders in the Helena area by providing training opportunities, a regular schedule of competitive events, and financial support.
  3. To sponsor and organize competitive events in the Helena area.
  4. To provide an opportunity for fitness oriented cyclists to learn training technique and competitive skills.

Actively competing is not a condition of membership…actively participating in the local cycling community, however, is required.
