Lamprey Systems started its sponsorship of the Lamprey Cycling team in 2008 with 6 riders which has grown to over 20 riders in 2013. Although it is called a cycling team, our athletes compete in triathlon, duathlons, marathons, adventure races, road races, cyclocross, criteriums and mountain biking events. Our goal is to support local Bethlehem, PA athletes compete both at the amateur and elite levels throughout the year. Other sponsors include Specialized bicycles, Easton, Motorex and Cutters Bike Shop in Bethlehem. Please check our posts for weekly updates on our blog and our twitter feed throughout the cycling season.
Check out photos from our 2012 Cyclocross race Town Hall Cross.
