Our 2022 Roster
What We Do
We are a Canadian registered UCI America’s Tour Continental race team, based in Belgium, bringing young racers from around the world to compete in the heart of international bicycle road racing.
We are reinventing the bicycle race team model by harnessing the collective efforts of our riders, staff and partners to build a robust, sustainable program returning long term benefit to all.
Our mission is to help young riders acquire the on and off bike skills and attitude that can act as a springboard for those seeking the next level of racing and beyond.
X-Speed United was formed in 2019 as a joint initiative between Western Australia, Canada and Hong Kong, with a focus on developing young riders from these three countries.
Noting the need for a new and sustainable model in cycling, a three-way agreement between the parties was established to contribute resources and ideas to an alliance dedicated to developing our junior riders.
X-Speed United, named after Hong Kong’s X-Speed Sports Club and their Western Australian sister club X-Speed Australia Cycle Club, debuted at the Tour of Johor in Malaysia in 2019 and went on to race a successful Asian tour calendar.
With the passing of Hong Kong director Andrew Szeto midway through the year, the team lost the man who established the X-Speed name and the driving force behind the junior development of the Hong Kong cycling fraternity.
Following Szeto’s loss, the direction of the team has now moved to Canada where we have partnered with Canadian kinesiology tape manufacturer, Spidertech.
X-Speed United is proud of its X-Speed origin and will never sacrifice our long-held principle of retaining our X-Speed name regardless of our status, country of registration or stakeholder obligations. This brand mandate forms part of our new and sustainable model in cycling and pays tribute to the man who started it all.
