[CT] Volcanica - Fox 2021

Presenting: VOLCANICA - FOX


Putting a cycling team on its feet is no easy task. Maintaining it and keeping true to its core values and goals means taming a different beast entirely. Working day by day on providing the best ground for its steady growth requires commitment, patience and an ability to juggle with all the problems, from the smallest ones to those that cause massive headaches, without dropping too many of them on the ground. All these didn't deter a group of cycling enthusiasts when they decided to raise their passion to another level. With only a few teams representing the Americas in the MG circuit, mainly coming from the South and North parts of the "New World", and with the recent regretful folding of the Mexican team Azteca, the closest one to their beloved region, they felt it was time for Central America to be represented within the ranks of professional cycling and for the local riders to have a medium in which to develop and showcase their talent. All easier said than done, but fortune favors the brave and soon two sponsors jumped on this project's bandwagon and committed themselves in helping establish this cycling team, Volcanica and Fox.


Volcanica Coffee Company is a family run business based in the United States, but deeply rooted in Costa Rica. Their inspiration came from frequent trips to their homeland of Costa Rica and their love for rich and flavored coffee. They started Volcanica Coffee to offer the customers high-quality single origin coffees and to help them discover what coffee can truly be. The company focuses on exotic coffees, with only the finest quality ingredients from the mineral-rich soil of the volcanic regions around the world. Volcanica offers more the 150 different fresh and refined coffees. The company donates 1% of sales from their website to charity: water, a non-profit organization that raises money to help bring clean, safe drinking water to every person on the planet. They saw this cycling project as a chance to help Costa Rican young riders practice the sport they love, while at the same time promoting the company's products and charity work across the world.


Fox Factory Holding Corp. is another American based company, best known for their off-road racing suspension components for motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles or mountain bikes. Fox holds several service centers across Central America, primarily in Costa Rica, but also in Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama. Although specialized in mountain bikes they were intrigued by the prospect of offering their expertise and support to a road racing cycling team. The opportunity of further increasing the awareness of the Central American cycling and the work of Fox Factory in the region was the decisive argument in joining the project.


Volcanica - Fox aims at establishing itself as a solid team in the MG circuit. The team management wishes to build the squad around Costa Rican cyclists, but also to provide the young riders from all Central America with a place where they can hone their skills and follow their dreams. To a lesser extent and if need arises the team will complete its ranks with cyclists from Latin America and United States, the latter a minor demand from the sponsors considering they're based in the USA. The ultimate goal is for Volcanica - Fox to build a squad of talented Central American cyclists capable of competing at the highest level and the team management will not steer away from the course of making that dream a reality.

Sounds like an awesome project and will be cool to see what kind of team you can put together. I’m also looking forward to competing with you this season in the CT.
For a moment you had me worried Fox News - Flat Earth Society would have to disband because of this. Good luck in your first season!
Changed my sig, this was getting absurd.
Good luck

IMO this project is somewhat a spiritual successor of the now (sadly) defunct Azteca - NBCSN team. Interesting choice of core region - good luck
Hopefully you can outlive the previous Costa Rican project and won't lose all the funding after a year. All the best
Wow, amazing project, all the best of luck mate! Really looking forward racing with you this season! Smile
Welcome to the game, amigo! Looking forward to see the story of a regional colleague unfold, and to fighting over some of the talents that will be added this year and in the future Smile

Also really feeling like drinking a nice espresso now after seeing that picture, great advertising by Volcanica Pfft
Welcome to the game Smile

Cool regional focus sir, best of luck.
Thank you very much, guys!

@Luis Leon Sanchez The challenge will start with this transfer period. Let's see what comes out of it.
@Ollfardh I thought of that confusion too, but I hope now it's clear.
@MacC Thanks.
@ivaneurope Yeap, it's a shame Azteca folded. It would have been nice to have a rival or mentor or both in the region.
@quadsas I am determined to stick to the project.
@Bjartne I'm looking forward to give my best in the races.
@Nemolito The battle for them will be fierce. Until then, have a coffee on me.
@hillis91 Thanks.

Thank you very much once again! Smile
Cool focus, as others have said will be cool to see you fill the shoes of Azteca in some ways - but most importantly I’m looking forward to seeing you doing you and bringing something new to the MG. Will be following you with interest - good luck and hope you enjoy it Grin

Great project, I like it a lot Grin
I hope you'll enjoy your first transfer period, and I hope you'll stay in the game for a long time Smile All the best!
looking forward to see your team forming. Not a lot of Costa Ricans in the DB right now and particularly not when looking for riders aged 30 or below so you'll have to build that nation up a bit over the next few years. Good luck with that!
A Big Thank You To All MG Reporters!

I've got my fingers crossed for a stylish orange/black/red jersey Smile Lovely intro post, i'm sure that caffine boost will carry you to a strong first season
@jandal7 I hope to give the project my personal touch. Or at least I'll do my best.
@Fabianski I plan on staying in the game for a very long time.
@knockout I am certain my team and region needs a build up and it will take time. But I'm committed and happy to do it.
@TheManxMissile The jersey is almost done, but don't put pressure on me. Wink The planning and race days will require caffeine boosts indeed.

Thank you guys! Smile I am looking forward to the season.
The jersey

Today, in front of a small attendance made by the representatives of the press and team fans, respecting the Covid-19 safety procedures, Volcanica – Fox presented the equipment its riders will wear during the 2021 season. The jersey, designed by DarkWolf, the team manager himself, was received with enthusiasms and excitement and both the officials and fans are hoping that it will lend a helping hand to the team’s visibility in the peloton.

That jersey is fire!
Hell yeah! That's a good start. Smile

Let's see how often you'll have the high ground this season.
Welcome to the game. It's indeed looking good that jersey! Best of luck in the off season!
