“What would we do differently if we had the chance to call the shots?” That’s the question teammates Ramsey and Elliot started asking themselves a year into racing. They wanted to use their voice to steer women’s road bike racing in a new direction.
It was a conversation over dinner and wine that led to them launching Ruckus Racing. The pair chatted about barriers and setbacks women face, such as few resources for beginner riders, a lack of supportive or progressive events.
Ruckus Racing was born to create an inspiring place for women to enter the sport. They wanted to create a community where women were supported in learning, racing and building their experience.
Yes, the name Ruckus Racing is a bit tongue in cheek by causing a disturbance in the racing scene but they are also helping cycling catch up with the times to be more inclusive.
