The Axeon Cycling Team is a team for the next generation of cyclists in the world. Our main goal is to develop youth cyclists and get them up to the Pro Tour. In 7 years we have sent 19 riders up to the professional ranks. Our team is comprised of 12 riders all under the age of 23 years old. Being a youth based team, we definitely rely heavily on music to pass the time. Whether we are on the trainer, traveling, or in a long van transfer…music is always a big part of what we do. We had each rider and staff member pick their two favorite songs of the moment in order to make our playlist. Hope you guys enjoy it!
Big thanks to the entire Axeon Cycling Team for giving us an incredibly diverse playlist of songs that help keep them motivated from start to finish! You can find out more about the Axeon cyclers below and be sure to keep up with them on social media via the links below.
