Feedback Sports supports some of the fastest road cycling teams in the world. Our “race day essentials” appeal to professional mechanics and team managers for a reason. And the best news is that these are the SAME products you can have for your very own.
Our bike repair stands make for quick, reliable and efficient maintenance–something that’s necessary when you’re washing and prepping up to 50 bikes for an event like The Tour de France. Our tools are forged, cast and laser-etched using the highest quality steel available and come in durable, portable cases. We offer only what’s necessary — no “tool-case fluff”. Once the bikes are ready, it’s time to warm-up with our Omnium portable trainer. It’s compact and light-weight but offers plenty of resistance for even the pro’s. Easy to set-up and tear-down means it’s a team manager’s best friend. Proper bike storage products also make it simple to store the bikes before and after a race or when they are being staged to service.
In short, we offer everything a pro-level road team needs to prep for success. What the athletes do with that preparation is entirely in their hands…or rather legs. And you can bet we’ll be cheering for each and every one of them from Golden, Colorado!

Quick-Step Floors Cycling Team is a World Tour cycling team established in 2003 and based in Wevelgem, Belgium, a city that’s iconic for Flemish cycling. Currently made up of 27 riders from 13 different countries, Quick-Step Floors has built an extraordinary reputation over the years, becoming one of the most successful squads in history, under the guidance of CEO Patrick Lefevere. At the end of 2010, Czech Businessman Mr. Zdenek Bakala took over the outfit, which is managed by a Board comprising eight members.
The team focuses on its Belgian roots, but also strives to have an international impact. Since its inception, the team has scored more than 600 victories, including 15 Monuments, 4 World Road Championships, 6 World ITT Championships, 3 World TTT Championships, 2 World Cups and an Olympic Title.
In 2017, Quick-Step Floors was the most successful team in the world for the sixth year in a row, amassing 59 victories (56 in UCI races). Current top riders for the team are sprinters Fernando Gaviria (winner of four stages and the cyclamen jersey at the Giro d’Italia), Elia Viviani (Olympic Omnium Champion), four-time Monument winner and 2012 World Champion Philippe Gilbert, Niki Terpstra (winner of the 2014 Paris-Roubaix), Zdenek Stybar (2015 Strade Bianche victor), Luxembourg Champion Bob Jungels, best young rider of the past two Giro d’Italia editions, and Julian Alaphilippe, the only rider in history to win the green and white jerseys at a single Paris-Nice edition.
This project was born in 2009 when team manager, Angelo Citracca decided to bring one of the most winning U-23 teams, Professional. Eight long years full of joy and pain brought two historical Italian brands (Wilier Triestina and Selle Italia) back into the peloton with better results year after year.
The combined history (112 years of history for Wilier Triestina, 121 for Selle Italia) has certainly helped. Team Wilier Triestina – Selle Italia has won the Italian Cup two times in the last four years, achieving more victories than any other Italian team in the last 4 years. They also had the opportunity to race the 100th edition of the Giro d’Italia with the team participating 8 times in these last 9 years.
They roll into 2018 with a strong roster led by two symbolic men of the Italian cycling: Filippo Pozzato and Jakub Mareczko. You can follow along with the team’s adventures (and those beautiful bikes) on their Instagram page as well as all their social media channels.
Two stage wins in the Tour of Utah. A stage win at Colorado Classic. Overall wins at Cascade Cycling Classic, Redlands, and the grueling Tour de Beauce. Multiple wins at Speed Week and a clean sweep at the Winston-Salem Cycling Classic. The only U.S.-based team that has won at least one stage in all of the largest North American stage races. And that was just 2017.
Holowesko|Citadel has quickly grown to become one of the strongest Continental racing teams, and it didn’t come from staring at power meters and perfecting form. Chief sports director, Thomas Craven, along with founders George and Rich Hincapie, approach managing the team from a place of mentor-ship and camaraderie. As Craven says, “We teach them all those things that can’t be dialed in with a computer.”
This team got it’s start in 2016 with a unique premise: dominate the Red Hook Crit Series. All in. Throw everything at it. Heck, design special BIKES around each race–and make them pretty. Then add two super fast guys to ride said pretty bikes. That’s exactly what they did in 2016 and it was wildly successful.
Specialized is aiming high yet again and has added more racers to the roster. They will be highlighting a different designer at each of the four Red Hook Crit (RHC) races, with each designer interpreting the riders’ complete look, including bikes, skinsuits, helmets, and shoes with creative direction completely open for the designer to go any way they wish. As for the racers…well, they only get to go one way. And that is fast.⠀
