Speedvagen is more than just a bike brand, it’s a family. The time spent learning a rider’s needs, and building a bike that exceeds those needs creates a special bond. The Speedvagen Family Racing (SVFR) team is an extension of those relationships we have built over the years. SVFR riders are a group of kindred spirits who are looking for a partnership, not a sponsor. Our riders go fast, but not at the expense of the enjoyment and camaraderie the cycling community fosters. Each member of the team is a friend first, and a racer second.
Our first video profile looks at Laura Winberry, who embodies the Speedvagen Family Racing ethos perfectly. Racing is her passion, but not her entire life. Laura is always looking for a creative outlet to express herself, and riding for Speedvagen is just one aspect of that.
In Laura’s words, “When I train and race I don't go by numbers or data or watts, I go by feel and intuition and a little-big thing called heart. SVFR is an extension and an embodiment of the latter, the feel and the intuition and the heart. While racing itself is a huge component of why I do what I do, the experience and the individuals surrounding that experience are just as important. Really, there's family of origin and there's chosen family, and it's about what you want to look back on, if you get the chance to look back. SVFR is part of all that, it's chosen family and it's part of what I want to look back on. It's like Jay Z says: my brothers is my brothers like my brother is”.
