House Industries-Richard Sachs CX Team
The Connecticut Yankee Bicycle Club was formed 1967 as a racing club affiliated with the Amateur Bicycle League of America. In the decades which followed, the club has had dozens of this country’s finest athletes as members on its teams. More than twenty C.Y.B.C. riders have represented the National Teams of both the United States and Canada.
Richard Sachs has raced with the club since 1974. His framebuilding business has been the title sponsor of the team since 1981.
For the past 17 years, Sachs’ loyal sponsorship of cyclocross teams in the US helped grow the sport and produced many top cyclocross athletes in the process, leading to 10 national championship titles since 1997, most recently for William Dugan at the 2009 Cyclocross Collegiate National Championships.
During the last decade, the team has been aided by generous industry support from Cane Creek, Crank Brothers, Cole Wheels, JB Custom Paint, Challenge Tires, VergeSport, Selle San Marco, Rudy Project, Connex, NixFrixShun, Northwave, Bailey Works, Lemond Revolution, Stages Cycling, Cinelli, Columbus, and Mad Alchemy, as well as financial sponsorship from RGM Watch Company, House Industries, The Chiu Family, The Radix Group, and Rajanaka Yoga.
